Organisational Development Director, Training Expert
As Organisational Development Director, I strive to ensure the effective operations and the continuous, strategically focused progress of the Hungarian Helsinki Committee. My position involves a variety of activities from human resources management and staff development, through fundraising and financial planning, to the construction and monitoring of our organisational strategy.
I have been working in the field of asylum and human rights since 2000, and I am a proud member of the Helsinki Committee team since 2002. Between 2010 and 2022 I was the director of the Refugee Programme. I am a passionate multilingual trainer: in the past fifteen years I had the privilege to teach over four thousand lawyers, judges, public administration and police officers, journalists, professors, NGO workers and staff members of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) from all continents of the world, on various topics related to asylum, migration and statelessness, in six languages. My particular professional interests in this field are evidence and credibility assessment in asylum procedures; interdisciplinary (psychological, intercultural, linguistic and gender) issues related to asylum; human rights safeguards concerning the detention of migrants; the law of nationality and statelessness; as well as innovative training, communication and capacity-building methods in the field of human rights and forced migration. I have also extensively researched and published on these issues. I am a co-founder and trustee of the European Network on Statelessness (ENS), a founding member of the Latin American Academic Network on the Law and Integration of Refugees (Red LAREF) and an external expert cooperating with the European Union Asylum Agency (EUAA) and the European Judicial Training Network (EJTN). I am a PhD candidate in law at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona.
