Marco Longobardo is a Research Fellow in Public International Law at the University of Westminster, where he also teaches public international law, international human rights law, and other related subjects. He undertook his doctoral studies at the Sapienza University of Rome and previously lectured at the University of Messina. He has published extensively on public international law issues in international peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of International Criminal Justice, the Heidelberg Journal of International Law, and the Netherlands International Law Review.
'The law governing occupation may seem to be 'a sort of relic of another time', to borrow Dr Longobardo's words, but despite the evolution of international law it unfortunately still remains relevant. In a sense, this is the ultimate protection of human rights, where the occupying state must ensure rights and freedoms not of its own population but in a place where its presence, if legitimate at all, can only be temporary. Dr Longobardo's fine analysis of the use of armed force, especially through the lens of the human right to life, is a masterful scholarly contribution' William A. Schabas, Middlesex University, London and Universiteit Leiden, The Netherlands
