New Series | What You Need to Know: Unpacking the Law in Russia’s War Against Ukraine

The Reiss Center on Law and Security and Just Security present a new series, What You Need to Know: Unpacking the Law in Russia’s War Against Ukraine. In brief question-and-answer interviews with leading experts, we will probe some of the most urgent and unsettled legal questions in a tragic conflict that threatens to reshape the international legal and political landscape for years to come.

Today, we launch the first discussion in the series, with Stephen Pomper on the Use of Cluster Munitions. Pomper explains the international legal framework governing cluster munitions and explores the United States’ complex posture on these weapons and their use in Ukraine.
