"What are the rules of war and how do they apply in Ukraine?," written by Associate Professor of Public Administration and International Affairs Michael Williams, was published in the Washington Post. Williams explains the rules of war, how they are applied by the military, and who enforces them. He also discusses war crimes and how they are investigated. "The rules of war aim to humanize war," writes Williams. "But they also leave much gray area for military operations and interpretation—and, in the end, room for much injustice."
