Aude joined the ICCT team in February 2021 as an intern.
Aude is currently pursuing her Master’s in International relations and Diplomacy, jointly taught by Leiden University and the Clingendael Institute. She graduated from the Université Grenoble-Alpes, with a Bachelor in Law specializing in international policies and a Bachelor in Languages specializing in English and Mandarin. For two years in a row, she was elected as a board member to represent the students’ interests. To get a practical overview of the theory she was learning at university, she applied to the French Gendarmerie to become a reservist.
Further, she did an internship in a Taiwanese NGO advocating for women’s rights by fighting against sexual violence. Her experiences further pushed her interests in diplomacy, crisis management and intelligence.
At ICCT, her work will center around assisting with Research and Acquisition projects, with a particular focus on rule of law.
