Tom Ruys, his research concerns the compatibility of the Turkish derogation measures adopted in the aftermath of the 15 July 2016 attempted military coup with international human rights law, and with international law more generally, and uses the Turkish case as a springboard to critically address the fallacies of the contemporary derogation regime. He holds a bachelor degree in Law from Ankara University, Turkey.
