Legal and Strategic Advice

I have several years of experience as a legal adviser, notably for the Swiss Department of Foreign Affairs, the International Committee of the Red Cross, Geneva Call and the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

I have participated to the drafting of international treaties such as the 2005 Third Additional Protocol to the 1949 Geneva Conventions and the 2013 Arms Trade Treaty.

In addition, I have provided for legal and strategic advice to Human Rights Watch, the Danish Refugee Council, Total and Education Above All Foundation.

Research & Teaching

My research focuses on the issue of armed non-state actors. I was awarded several research fellowships and grants, in particular from UK Research and Innovation,  McGill University, New York University and the Swiss National Science Foundation.

I am the author of numerous publications on various international law topics, including an award-winning article on ‘International Law and Armed Non-State Actors in Afghanistan’ (International Review of the Red Cross, 2011, SNIS Geneva Award 2011).

I also teach at Sciences Po, Paris, the University of Berne and the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights. In 2015, I was awarded the Paris School of International Affairs Award for my course ‘War and Law’.
