What I do


I am an international lawyer with almost 10 years of experience in media and journalism. I use my legal expertise and my communication skills to engage governments and improve laws in order to achieve a more just and peaceful world.

Currently I'm an adviser to Dr Denis Mukwege, a renowned Congolese gynaecologist, and his foundation in The Hague. Dr Mukwege is a specialist in treating the injuries of rape victims in conflict zones. He received the UN Human Rights Prize, the Sakharov Prize and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work.

I support Dr Mukwege and his foundation in developing strategies to improve the laws around sexual violence in conflicts. We believe that law can contribute to ban the use of rape as a weapon of war.

I excell at and would be delighted to support your organization in

advocacy for global change
communications in international law and politics
providing trainings and workshops

I have developed a strong expertise in the justice mechanisms for international crimes, including genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes as well as the politics of international law.

I use strategic communications to improve the impact of NGOs and strengthening international law and cooperation.
