I am a human rights lawyer specialized in equality rights. I manage Human Rights Initiative’s grants portfolio on advancing the rights of Roma minority in Europe. From 2003 to 2009 I worked on legal capacity development and legal empowerment at the Open Society Justice Initiative. Within these fields, I participated in setting up university legal aid and social justice programs in Eastern Europe, Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. In 2008-2009 and 2010-2012, Mariana participated as legal skills and human rights trainer in two legal empowerment pilot initiatives in Romania and Moldova, focusing on paralegal training and community empowerment tools.
I serve as the President of the Global Alliance for Justice Education, a network of individual justice and legal educators committed to advance social justice worldwide.
