Emma is an intern at the Geneva Human Rights Platform and an LLM candidate at the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights. Her main tasks at the GHRP involve contributing to the project on the Focus Treaty Body Review in an attempt to 'bring the treaty system closer to the people on the ground.'
Emma has robust experience assisting the local community through various volunteering projects and is in the process of building her professional career in the human rights sector. She has previously worked for a Brussels-based NGO, advocating for the rights of migrant women at the European level and contributing to the fight against gender-based violence. Passionate about human rights law and migration, she obtained a double-bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Law from the University of Kent specialising in International Human Rights law and Asylum and Refugee law, whilst discovering the psychology behind human behaviours and social norms. She aspires to combine the knowledge acquired from these two disciplines to facilitate the understanding of key issues and engagement of major stakeholders in the human rights arena.
