Anikó Bakonyi

Senior programme officer, Refugee programme




I graduated from Central European University with a degree in human rights. I have been working in the Helsinki Committee’s Refugee Programme since 2010. I believe that those who are forced to flee should have access to protection and a chance at a new, dignified life. My hope is that through our work we make the voice of marginalised people heard. Despite the fact that we have not been able to carry out human rights monitoring since 2017, we still continue to report on the fate of vulnerable asylum-seekers and  victims of pushed-backs. More importantly, we represent their interests – because human dignity belongs to everyone.
