People who were forced to flee their homes due conflict and violence, deserve our respect and our support. Having worked for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in East Timor and in Ivory Coast, I gathered substantial experiences in the coordination of relief efforts and implementation of projects promoting the social and economic reintegration of displaced persons. During a recent mission in Turkey, I supported the German Federal Enterprise for International Cooperation (GIZ) in the implementation of income-generating measures for the benefit of Syrian refugees and other persons in need.
Moreover, I consult organisations in Germany working in the field of refugee support, migration and integration. In particular, I provide support on issues related to funding acquisition and grant management.
