Pelin Ekmen is a PhD student at the School of Law at King’s College London. A scholar to the German National Academic Foundation, Pelin graduated with distinction in German law, English law and international law and subsequently travelled to Iraq in preparation for her doctoral thesis. As an undergraduate student, a placement with the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia formed her keen interest in post conflict international law. Based around a case study on Iraq her doctoral research thus examines the legal framework governing the allocation of natural resources in post conflict states. Her research interests lie in war law and state building after violent conflict, as well as in constitutional law and asymmetric state design.
