Camilla Barker, a second year DPhil candidate at St Cross College, has been awarded a Modern Law Review Scholarship to support her doctoral research on humanitarian access in natural disasters. Since 2003, the Modern Law Review has made available an annual amount in financial support for research students engaged in doctoral research at a university in the United Kingdom on any subject broadly within the publishing interests of the Review. Awards are made by annual competition based on nominations submitted by the Head of Department of the University.

This award comes at a time when Camilla is also generously supported by a grant from the Oxford Global Justice Internship Programme, allowing her to undertake a three month stint at the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA) in New York City.
