Mireille Affa’a Mindzie joined IPI in March 2011 as Senior Policy Analyst in the Africa program.
Before joining IPI, Mireille worked as Legal Officer with the Gambia-based Institute for Human Rights and Development in Africa. Her work focused on human rights training and capacity building of African human rights lawyers and organizations, as well as legal advocacy and litigation before the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights. More recently, she worked with the Centre for Conflict Resolution, based in South Africa. As Senior Project Officer in the center’s regional training program, she organized and conducted workshops for members of the African Union human rights institutions, government officials and members of parliament, national human rights institutions, and civil society and women’s groups from countries including Burundi, Cote d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Sudan. Mireille also wrote and published articles and book chapters on issues such as transitional justice, democracy and the rule of law, human rights and African states’ foreign policy, and humanitarian intervention and protection.
She holds a doctorate from the University of Strasbourg in France and is bilingual in French and English.
IPI is grateful to our generous friends and donors who provide both intellectual and financial support. Their contributions help us in a very practical way to achieve program objectives, and their leadership is an invaluable resource to our organization.
