I’m very pleased to announce that Andrea Farrés Jiménez has joined the blog as the news editor.

Andrea is a Spanish qualified lawyer holding a master’s in international law from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies. Her primary research interests are in the fields of international humanitarian law, disarmament and security studies. She has experience in collaborating with different stakeholders around human rights, criminal law and humanitarian action. Andrea won a research-based essay contest organized by the ICRC, which allowed to publish and present her findings related to artificial intelligence and warfare in a roundtable organized in San Remo.

At the same time as Andrea joins the blog, Sam Jackson will step down from his position as news editor. Thank you, Sam! As always, do not hesitate to get in touch if you have a relevant publication or news that you think we should publicize.
