It is hosted by the Exeter Centre for International Law, in collaboration with the European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy and the Lieber Institute of the United States Military Academy.

The aim of the conference is to explore the legal challenges presented by gray zone conflict, hybrid threats and lawfare, and to develop the notion of legal resilience as a conceptual and policy framework for countering these challenges more effectively.
