Self-introduction
I majored in international law, particularly specialised in international human rights law. Currently I am conducting research on peacebuilding based on the peacekeeping and peacebuilding experiences as a practitioner. My particular research interest is how conflict and peacebuilding affect people and I apply human rights lens on peacebuilding. My current research themes include peacebuilding through business, education in emergencies, jus post bellum and security governance.
