I am a Sri Lankan lawyer specializing in international law, international humanitarian law and sanctions.
I worked for the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Government of Sri Lanka in the fields of international law and international humanitarian law.
I strongly believe that every student should have equal access to educational opportunities and quality learning materials. I am reminded that we still have some way to go before all students can begin their careers on an equal footing: Textbooks continue to be prohibitively expensive for students of the Global South. Organizers of academic conferences still hesitate to provide need-based assistance for deserving students to present papers. International Organizations, including the United Nations, still, shamefully, announces unpaid internships.
Against this background, this blog is published with the intention to allow everyone reading these posts to have access to some of the basic concepts of international law.
I hope this blog will be useful to you in your international law journey. Good luck!
