About me

I am an international lawyer ​specialised in armed conflicts with expertise in the protection of women (especially sexual violence) and children (especially child soldiers). My latest book, co-written with Dr Windell Nortje, focuses on the defence of duress raised by child soldiers having committed crimes under international criminal law. For the past decades, I have been involved in teaching and training humanitarian workers, military lawyers and members of NGOs.

PhD S​upervision: I am interested in supervising students working in the following areas: international law, international humanitarian law, international criminal law, European human rights law, protection of women and/or children in armed conflict, institutional European Union law.​​

Area of expertise

International humanitarian law; international criminal law; European human rights law; institutional European Union law; use of force and collective security
