Camilla is a doctoral candidate at the Faculty of Law, University of Oxford. She holds law degrees from Harvard Law School (LL.M., Fulbright Scholar) and the University of London (LL.B. (Hons)). Camilla’s doctoral research involves humanitarian assistance under international law, particularly the extent to which the development of obligations with respect to assistance in natural disasters can and should be informed by relevant obligations in international humanitarian law. She writes about these and related topics for online media outlets, including the Huffington Post and The Conversation, and is working with organizations including the United Nations on legal issues pertaining to humanitarianism. Camilla is also currently engaged in funded governmental policy research to improve targeted humanitarian access for besieged populations in armed conflicts.

 Camilla’s introductory post today discusses the potential establishment of humanitarian corridors in Syria.  Heartfelt welcome!
