Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
My main academic interests are focused on international law, especially international humanitarian law and human rights. My research also deals with the role played at the international level by non-governmental organizations, specifically how they may participate in the processes which lead to the creation of international law.
I hope the Global Ethics Network will serve as a forum that will enable young scholars from around the world to exchange ideas, experiences and to engage in discussions that we would otherwise not be able to have. I am sure that all of us can benefit from listening different perspectives, especially those coming from outside our own professional/academic background.
