Class 13 (2014-2016)
Romi Brammer, South Africa
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – Global Studies
Romi is currently studying a MA in Global Studies at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. She has previously worked in human rights organizations geared towards providing legal assistance to indigent individuals and refugees. More recently, she worked as a researcher for the UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions. In her work, she has been struck by the number of different aspects which play a role in fueling political instability and human rights abuses. Whilst Romi has a legal background (having completed a LLB degree in law and a LLM in international law), she selected to study an interdisciplinary Master’s degree in order to obtain a multidimensional perspective, which she considers essential in overcoming human rights abuses.
