Ms. Feng Yuxi is a Ph.D. candidate at the Faculty of Law, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Ms. Feng obtained her bachelor’s degree in laws in Fudan University and completed her master’s study in international law in Fudan University. Ms. Feng has a strong research interest and extensive research experience in topics bearing on the international peace and security, including refugee issues and legal issues on the use of force.
Ms. Feng Yuxi is particularly interested in jus ad bellum, transitional justice and legal theories. With her thesis, she aims to explore the conceptual underpinnings of the so-called “international community,” i.e., the complementary bearer of the Responsibility to Protect when the sovereign state manifestly fails its primary responsibility to protect its populations from mass atrocity crimes. After mapping out the indispensable communal ties and fleshing out the parameter of potential community members, the research will consider implications of such a construct for R2P’s application in real-world situations with the goal to facilitate its implementation.
