Eden’s research project seeks to examine the way states interpret the laws regulating war when they fight against rogue actors (both state and non-state) who disrespect and constantly violate international law. In her project, Eden seeks to find a suitable construction of the laws to achieve an appropriate balance between the two aspects embodied in the laws of war – promoting state interest and humanitarian concerns.

Eden received her LL.M. in International Legal Studies from NYU (2020), where she was an International Law and Human Rights Fellow and worked at Just Security. Prior to her graduate studies, she worked as a legal advisor at the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Eden earned her LL.B. from the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya (cum laude), where she worked as a research and teaching assistant in various fields. She then clerked in the Armed Conflict Unit of the Office of the Israeli Deputy Attorney General (International Law) and the Office of the Israeli Attorney General.
