What’s this?

This is an independent blog, driven by my curiosity and thirst for knowledge alone.

During my studies I have had the chance to side-step into the fields of Just War Theory and International Human Rights Law. Curiosity brought me there and the classes boosted my interest in the topic, which hasn’t faltered since.

Since then, I have had the honor of meeting several torture survivors. Their stories of hardship and hope has stuck with me. This blog is dedicated to those men and women.

Some posts may be opinionated, but I’m true to facts, and will rely on credible sources, experts, survivors and witnesses, in my quest for answers to my many (big and small) questions.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading.
