I educate, consult, speak and write on human rights law, human rights discourses, human rights education, and inclusive storytelling (knowledge production). The aim of my services is freedom and equality.
I take seriously how identities and identifications are historically grown and institutionalized in law, education and discourses, and that they influence human consciousness and behavior. Identities and identifications such as race, gender, sexual, national, other identities and the ways in which these intersect. This opens up a space to reflect genuinely and critically on human rights norms, knowledge production, identities, identifications and power. Which in itself opens up a space for real change towards increased freedom and equality.
I therefore contribute to (experiences of) freedom and equality through education, writing and consultancy on human rights and inclusive narratives.
