Based within the University of Glasgow’s School of Law, the Glasgow Centre for International Law and Security (GCILS) is a centre of excellence for research and training in the field of international law and security.
GCILS is home to a cosmopolitan community of around 40 active research staff and doctoral students, making it one of most significant hubs for international legal research in the United Kingdom. The breadth of expertise and interest of our researchers is reflected in 12 specialist areas within the field of international law and security, broadly understood. Our researchers approach international law from diverse angles (e.g. practice-oriented, critical, doctrinal) to produce work of significance. This research provides the basis for academic programmes and executive training carried out at Glasgow and beyond, including three specialised postgraduate degrees and a new Erasmus Mundus programme.
