My current services include:
- Consultations, legal research, advice and support on international human rights law issues. I have particular interests in advancing economic and social rights for marginalized people and in humanitarian-based claims supported by the right to truth, especially in relation to missing persons. I did extensive research on the right to truth for my recent master's degree in International Human Rights Law.
