Marcel Van Maastrigt (E.MA Graduate 2000/2001)
Head of Office, UNHCR in Kadugli, Sudan
After having worked in two UN missions, the E.MA was an opportunity for me to sharpen my knowledge of international human rights instruments and practises. The course, through its broad approach, prepared me further for diverse positions, from a temporary post at the UNHCHR office in Geneva to various field functions with UNHCR. The E.MA functions furthermore as a network of people working in HR or IHL-related organisations allowing for a direct connection between academic training and working in the HR ‘field’.
