This week’s speaker:

Sandrine Tiller has been working with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) since 2011. In her role as a humanitarian adviser, she provides analysis and carries out advocacy to support MSF operations and field teams. Her expertise is in humanitarian issues, particularly in the politicisation of aid and the current state of the aid system. She is the co-author of MSF ’s report ‘Where is everyone? Responding to emergencies in the most difficult places.’

Prior to MSF , Sandrine worked for seven years with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on Middle East files in Geneva and was posted to Jerusalem and Beirut. Sandrine has also worked with local grassroots organisations in Venezuela, with the UN Volunteers programme in Eritrea and Tanzania, and the British Red Cross.

About the CGHR Practitioner Series:

For those hoping to pursue a career in the ‘Third Sector’, especially amidst a broad range of organisations and agencies whose mandates can be loosely collected under the umbrella headings of ‘Human Rights and Social Justice’, ‘Conflict and Security’ or ‘Development and Humanitarian Aid,’ the terrain can be difficult to navigate. A sound academic training, the kind provided by Cambridge University, is important but certainly not enough to prepare students for the transition into working in this sector. Through a mixture of substantive discussion, personal reflection and practical advice, the CGHR Practitioner Series brings together high‐level experts working in these fields and creates a forum in which students and researchers can listen and ask questions about what this work actually involves, seek out reflections from experience on the dilemmas and challenges faced, and probe the skill set and experience needed to forge a career in these fields.
