Professional Experience:
I have over 17 years of interdisciplinary experience working in human rights and gender equality. With this experience, I have developed and led comprehensive, impactful programs, projects and research initiatives. Throughout my career, I produced original research and analytical work on human rights and gender equality challenges and proposed innovative policy recommendations operationalized in programs and projects.

Since 2001, I have worked extensively on human rights and gender equality in conflict and non-conflict zones. I managed and mentored diverse teams of human rights technical and professional officers, leading them from programs and projects design through implementation. This work has entailed, through strategic outreach, the building of key partnerships that have strengthened constructive dialogue and engagement.

I held positions with the United Nations, Crisis Action, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
I hold a Ph.D. in Public International Law from the University of Glasgow. My thesis examines the question of judicial review of the UN Security Council's resolutions. I also hold LL.M. in Public International Law from the University of Glasgow, and BA in Political Science from the American University of Beirut.
