Dr Kalpouzos’ research is in the law of armed conflict, international criminal law and the law on the use of force. His research focuses on the role of non-state armed groups in international law, particularly in the context of ‘new wars’; on law and new technologies of war, particularly their influence on asymmetry in conflict and the influence of increasingly autonomous weapons; and on international criminal law and ‘banal’ or ‘structural’ criminality. He was awarded a Harvard Law School Institute of Global Law and Policy collaborative grant for his research on Law and Technologies of War.
