I am a legal expert with experience in post conflict countries in the areas of human rights protection, access to justice and legal framework development. I have for more than 20 years worked in the area of human rights, with 15 years of work in Timor-Leste. Development of legal research and provision of advisory legal services, including legislation drafting and analysis, are regular daily activities. I have worked with local and international NGOs and public institutions (including NHRI), UN agencies and mission, and others.
I studied law in South Africa and have a Masters degree on human rights and democratization from EUIC programme. I have recently co-authored a book about human rights in East Timor.
Recently I have joined forces with two timorese lawyers to establish JU,S Jurídico Social, a social enterprise focusing on human rights and access to justice. JU,S is starting to develop programmes aimed at legal empowerment and we are interested in connecting with other organizations
