Federica Masi

Joined March 2021
Interests: Gender-based violence, LGBTQI+ Rights, Policy Advocacy, Women's Rights
I have a PHD in Human Rights protection and extensive experience on social justice in the Global North and South. I have worked in the past 22 years in the international cooperation covering different roles and position in the civil society with short and long missions in about 20 countries. I have been the Executive Director of the international NGO COSPE in Italy for 7 years and then Director of the International Cooperation Department for other 6 years. In 2018 I have decided to move to another COSPE Branch, namely COSPE in Eswatini, as Country Director, to be closer to the programs’ implementation in a South perspective and to put at disposal my knowledge and experiences in human rights for a transformative change, as well to enlarge and enrich my professional competencies. I am currently the Southern Africa Coordinator and also the Project Manager for a large regional LGBTI rights program, supporting LGBTI organisations and human rights defenders in Eswatini, Malawi, and Zimbabwe.
I would like to join the network to know about other programs and organisations that are operating for the enhancement of human rights and social justice, to put at disposal the best practise that I have encountered or developed so far, to learn about other interesting exeperineces that could be disseminated and replicated, to access opportunities of trainings, competence building, and exchange programmes, and also funding opportunities for new projects and ideas. I think it is a great opportunity at a personal professional level, but also for the other civil society organisations, grass roots organisations and activists we are working with.
