Marie Bohner

Freelance, project coordinator and event organiser, I work in the field of human rights, development and culture, mainly at international level. My path brought me to spend some time in India where I worked (and still do) with Ekta Parishad, a social movement for the landless peasants, and its international ramifications. Being both French and German, I feel concerned, since a long time, by women's rights and conflict issues.
