On behalf of the IntLawGrrls editorial team, I’m delighted to announce that Danielle DerOhannesian has agreed to become our new Submissions Editor. Danielle, who has been an IntLawGrrls student editor since May, will now be the main point of contact for new contributors. As detailed in our earlier post, Danielle has a strong interest and background in international law, and human rights law in particular. She was previously the Libya Correspondent with the Media Monitoring Project for the Montréal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies. Danielle also interned in Israel and Palestine with rights-based community centers in disadvantaged neighbourhoods and performed research for the Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center. We’re delighted to have her step into this new role.
We also say a fond farewell and heartfelt thank you to Karen Hoffman, who has been our Submissions Editor for over two years, and was a student editor for a year before that. Karen has her hands full as an On-The-Ground Advocate at the Berks Family Detention Center, representing families fleeing violence in Central America. She also serves as a coordinator for the NGO Advocates Abroad, which connects lawyers from around the world with refugees in Greece and Turkey. We’re deeply grateful for her many contributions to the blog.
