PhD in international law from the School of Law, University of Aberdeen. The thesis title is “The Legal Regime Applicable to Private Military/ Security Company Personnel in Armed Conflicts”. Diploma in Rapid Expert Assistance and Co-operation Teams for Conflict Prevention, Crisis Management and Post-Conflict Rehabilitation from International University Centre for Peace Missions- Helsinki spaña and Escuela de Organización Industrial (Recognized by UN Peace Operations Training Institute).
His PhD thesis analysed “The Legal Regime Applicable to Private Military/Security Company Personnel in Armed Conflicts” and has since been published as a book by Springer (http://www.springer.com/gb/book/9783319422305). In this thesis, he established the classification of PMSC personnel under International Law (whether they are mercenaries, combatants and civilians) and the legal regulation of PMSCs, including the applicability of Human Rights Law, when these companies are hired to participate in armed conflicts. The methodology used to deal with the research question relies on the type of clients hiring these companies. The regulations of PMSCs and the classification of their personnel rely on whether they are used by states, UN (as peacekeepers), humanitarian organisations or armed groups.
