Meet the Team

Our team reflects the multiregional and multi-layered nature of our network and includes:

  • the editors: they lead the initiative, communicating with contributors and prospective contributors about matters such as the initiative’s scope and approach; coordinating the light-touch review process and completing light editing; publishing the submissions, and promoting them via the Global Campus website and social media channels.
  • the reviewers: they provide light-touch reviews focused on relevance, fairness and accuracy.
  • the advisors: they provide guidance, eg, they may recommend a specific blog or interview series, or propose a virtual roundtable to highlight a particular issue or foreground a dimension related to the Global Campus’ unique character.
  • the regional correspondents: they are graduates of our regional master’s programmes and contribute with posts building the human rights-based approach to pandemics and/or other emergencies/crises in their respective regions.

Featuring our Alumni as Regional Correspondents

We are always delighted when our alumni contribute to Human Rights Preparedness. To increase opportunities to participate, we have a paid training scheme through which our alumni can apply to be appointed as regional correspondents. They can also build on their work for the blog to submit an article to the Global Campus Human Rights Journal.

We run competitions to select these alumni correspondents. Those selected--from each Global Campus region--then complete training with Rosie Cowan, a member of our editorial team.

The publications they prepare are incisive and informative, displaying the range and depth of skills and interests that characterise Global Campus alumni.
