My name is Hager Mahmoud Mohamed said Abdellatif, and I have been awarded with the Vreede Scholarship by the Lutfia Rabbani Foundation to attend the 2018 Summer Program at The Hague Academy of International Law.
I work as a lecturer in the department of Public International Law, at the faculty of Legal Studies and International Relations at the Pharos University in Alexandria, Egypt. In addition, I am currently doing my PhD thesis in the faculty of Law at Cairo University in the same field, which is Public International Law.
I always had the belief that International Law is the voice of peace and a bridge for communication amongst human beings. From my perspective, the Peace Palace had always been the gate to this magical world of law, justice, and peace.
Taking in consideration our economic situation as a country, and also as girls in more conservative communities, being able to take this journey and to be part of such a prestigious, enriching experience was the realization of a dream.
