Riccardo Labianco

PhD Researcher, SOAS, University of London

In 2015, I took my first master degree in Law at the University of Trento (Italy), defending a dissertation about the concept of citizenship in Israel and Lebanon.

In 2016, I graduated at SOAS with a LL.M in Human Rights, Conflict and Justice. During this master, I explored the role of the law in extraordinary situations, such as conflict-peace transitions. A topic that I still study now.

Currently, I am a PhD student at SOAS, researching the relationship between state-to-state arms transfers and Public International Law.

Among my biggest interests there are Public International Law, Disarmament Law, the Law of Armed Conflicts, and the Middle East region.
