Centre for International Humanitarian and Operational Law

Centre for International Humanitarian and Operational Law (CIHOL) was established jointly by the Palacký University Faculty of Law and the Czech Armed Forces as a result of a longstanding and fruitful cooperation between the two institutions in the area of international humanitarian law and related fields of international law. The interconnection between IHL focused academia and practice makes the Centre unique in the Central European context.

Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in EU Law

Since 2019 Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in EU Law continues its cutting edge research in new areas. Digitalization, robotization and cybersecurity should not be a chaotic process, but on the contrary, it must be regulated by the „smart“ and appropriate legal rules, which on one side will reflect the peculiarities of mentioned phenomena, and on the other side will ensure their compliance with the rule of law principles.

The introduction and implementation of new legal rules, tailored exclusively for these purposes, is extremely crucial right now. The project concerning its ratione materiae is dedicated to the analysis and solving of these challenges resulted from global usage of modern technologies.
