Europe Coordinator, Friends-International

Biography

I have been working in the field of children's rights for the past 15 years. I worked on child protection in Guatemala, I was part of the founding team of Human Rights Watch office in Geneva and I worked at Friends-International in Cambodia where I launched its alternative care project. I then lived in Beijing for three years. Back in Switzerland, I opened Friends-International's first operational office in Europe in June 2014, which is working on expanding the ChildSafe Network in Europe.

I am the author of a book called "Au-delà des cerfs-volants, chroniques d'une étrangère en Chine".
