The Public Affairs Institute currently runs a program of studying the origins and current issues related to international law. The focus of the program is on the law of war, humanitarian law, and especially law related to labor and migration. The project begins with an intense study of the background of current policy through visits to institutions working to strengthen law, such as the International Criminal Court. Students involved in the program are obligated to produce a result of benefit to the wider world. The 2013 students are working on a project, mostly in Michigan, to promote consideration of the co-operative economic models they experienced in Mondragon, Spain. In 2010, the students hosted a conference in Chicago on U.S. support for the International Criminal Court. In 2011, a new group organized an international human rights conference in Washington
