Nick Tobia, The Philippines
I served in the Commission on Human Rights of the Philippines as the Executive Assistant to the Chairperson, the Hon. Leila M. De Lima. I earned my Juris Doctor at the University of the Philippines and my Bachelor of Arts at the Ateneo De Manila University.
I was a teacher and school administrator before attending law school, and I will always be an educator at heart. Apart from that, I also have a special affection for the outdoors, having been a recreational mountaineer since 1995.
My current research interest involves National Human Rights Institutions and Regional Human Rights Mechanisms.
