Biography

Eitan received an LLB from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (2000) and an LLM in Public International Law from the London School of Economics and Political Science (2005) where he was a Chevening Scholar. His LLM dissertation, awarded a distinction, considered the normative obligations of soldiers when given orders entailing a breach of international criminal law. He is also a recipient of the 2016 Diploma for Human Rights awarded by the Academy of European Law at the European University Institute.

Eitan specializes in international humanitarian and human rights law. He is currently serving as a Child Protection Consultant for UNICEF. Prior to that he served as executive director of the human rights NGO Gisha (2014-15), as legal advisor to the ICRC Delegation in Israel and the Occupied Territories (2007-14) and as research officer and legal adviser at the Israeli NGO B’tselem (2005-7). In addition, he assisted in founding the London-based international NGO Videre Est Credere, which seeks to expose and uproot human rights violations using video documentation. He also served as legal consultant to the European Research Council-funded project ‘Forensic Architecture’ hosted by the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London, as legal editor for the book Forensis (published 2014) and as a member of the editing board of the Journal of International Humanitarian Legal Studies.
