My name is Riyadh Al Balushi, I am a lawyer from the Sultanate of Oman. I am currently pursuing a PhD in copyright and human rights at SOAS, University of London.
Prior to starting my PhD, I worked for the Ministry of Legal Affairs of the Sultanate of Oman where I advised the government on issues relating to international law, constitutional law, and public procurement law. I am currently on study leave from my job for the duration of my PhD studies.
I am interested in the internet law, intellectual property, open data, and the commons with a focus on the Arab world.
I also write a column for Muscat Daily on internet law.
Details on how to get in touch with me are found on here.
