She is also, on a consultant’s basis, the Senior Legal and Policy Advisor for the Red Line Initiative, recently initiated by the Mukwege Foundation together with 2018 Nobel Peace Laureate Dr. Denis Mukwege, which seeks to create an international convention for the elimination of sexual violence as a method of warfare.
