Personal Introduction

I am from the UK, but am currently living and studying in Sweden. During my undergraduate I also studied in Melbourne, Australia. I have recently returned from working at the Special Court for Sierra Leone on the RUF Trial Case. At present I am finalising my Master’s thesis, an investigation into the obligations on non-State actors under International Humanitarian Law, focusing on the situations in Colombia and Uganda. Besides this, I am Joint Chairperson for a newly established NGO based in Lund, Sweden. I am also working as Country Correspondent for a legal database service specialising in European Community Law.
