Emily joined the CAN International team in July 2014 as a Network Development Officer.
She comes to us from the Crisis Action, a catalyst and coordinator for NGOs working together to protect civilians from armed conflict. Here she worked on various projects, including an emergency response campaign on the escalating conflict in the Central African Republic. Previously Emily worked at the European Commission in a communications role, promoting foreign language education across Europe and in particular in the UK. She has also worked as a climate campaigner and on sustainable development projects with grassroots organisations and communities in Asia and Africa.
Emily is enthusiastic to be working in a network which is committed to building a global, inclusive movement. In particularly, she is interested in how the movement can incorporate cross-cutting issues into their work on climate change and sustainable development.
Emily holds a BA in International Relations from Durham University, UK and a MSc in Violence, Conflict and Development from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), UK. Emily currently works out of London.
