Fatimata Atty Djibrine
Junior Research Fellow
Fatima is a Bachelor Honours candidate in International and Comparative Politics and minoring in International Law and International Business Administration at the American University of Paris.
Her multiculturalism has shaped her lens of perception as it continues to provide her with tools to aim for the deconstruction of the current status quo, striving to form norms that are inclusive, adaptable and will bridge the gap between the developed and developing poles. These frameworks have oriented her towards social sciences enabling her to grasp the human complexities. She is mostly involved in humanitarian work such as volunteering at orphanages to teach English in her hometown. She has previously interned at the United Nations Population Fund in Niger and has partaken in many discussions, most notably the Paris Peace Forum, the Athens Democracy Forum as a Youth Delegate, and as a panelist speaker at the Global Progress Summit.
Her current research has been focused on the inclusivity of the global south narrative within the discourse of policies mostly pertaining to climate change, imperialism, and political stability.

The European Union has emerged and asserted itself as a global leader within the climate discourse. It is essential that its current plans for actions at the transnational level avoid retracing history and instead provide a model of stewardship that will set a precedent for other nations to follow.
