Joined June 2020
Interests: Community / Customary Land Rights, Environmental Justice, Land & Natural Resources, Traditional / Customary Justice
I am coordinator in a project which provides legal support to indigenous autonomies and indigenous organizations in the Amazonian rainforest of Peru. Therefore, I am in close contact with indigenous leaders and with local people who try to keep their culture and exercise their right to self determination in their territories. I would like to share experiences with people who work in this area, and if it is possible, to obtain finantial support for improving the capacities of local people for doing legal defense by themselves. I am a peruvian lawyer, with a Dr. jur and LL.M. by Georg August University of Göttingen. I am especialized in International Environmental Law, Right of Natural Resources, and Human Rights. I have several years of work experience on environmental conflict management and in strategic litigation. I am also researcher at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.
