Claire Lauterbach

I majored in Political Science and History at Duke.

I work now for Gender Action in Washington, DC. Gender Action's goal is to ensure that women and men equally participate in and benefit from all investments of international financial institutions like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. My role is a mix of program coordination and research.

Prior to April 2012, I worked as a researcher for Human Rights Watch in Goma, Democratic Republic of the Congo. Before that, I worked in the UK where I was the Communications and Publications Officer for the Refugee Studies Centre (University of Oxford) and the Associate Coordinator at the All-Party Parliamentary Group on the Great Lakes Region of Africa in the British House of Commons. I hold an MPhil degree in African Studies from the University of Leiden, The Netherlands during which I lived in Kampala and worked with forced migrants.

Please feel free to contact me; I'd love to hear from you.
