Hi, and welcome to my site! My name is Anna Dannreuther. I am a Brit living and working in New York. I have a Masters in Law from Columbia Law School, and I am currently a Public Interest Fellow at the Legal Aid Society, where I represent women and children in their immigration proceedings. I am a regular contributor to the human rights news and information website RightsInfo.org. You can see my author profile here.
I grew up in Lewisham, South East London, and completed a B.A. at Cambridge University in modern languages (French and Spanish) before studying law. I worked in the European Court of Justice, the European Court of Human Rights, and the Inter-American Court of Human rights before training to be a lawyer at Berwin Leighton Paisner in London, and subsequently moving to the States.
I am interested in most things, but particularly the meaning of equality in modern society, how governments can best support their populations, the feminization of human rights, and functioning global migration and tax systems. The aspiration for this blog is to question how things are and to consider how things can be better in the future. Being a lawyer, I come from a somewhat legal perspective, and human rights, constitutional law, and democratic norms are common themes I focus on.
I like debate! So please do leave thoughtful comments on articles or to my twitter handle (@aodannreuther). But keep it clean. The last thing we need is more trolls in the world (especially against women who speak).
