With the increasing need to work on international legal issues arising from the Syrian conflict, and in order to raise its capacity to work on these issues, the Syrian Legal Development Programme (SLDP) has hired three legal researchers to the team.
Giorgio Milliore, who holds a law degree cum laude from the University of Milan, and an LLM with distinction in international law from University College London, has worked for a non-profit organisation in the field of immigration and asylum and interned at the International Criminal Court before joining SLDP.
Shaza Alsalmoni holds an LLM in International Human Rights Law from the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom. She also holds a Bachelor in law from the University of Damascus in Syria, and pays particular attention to international human rights law and international humanitarian law as well as international criminal law.
Maryam Al-Majlawi is currently completing her MA degree in international human rights law at the American University in Cairo. She graduated Summa Laude with a double major in History and Political Science, with a double specialisation in International Relations and International law, from the same University. During her studies she completed training in the United Nations Development Program. Prior to joining SLDP, she completed five months of training in the Country Analysis Unit of the International Criminal Court.
