She also coordinated CIDSE’s finance advocacy for more than a decade and led the work of European and international civil society coalitions on the UN’s Financing for Development and Post-2015/SDG processes. Jean comes from Mumbai and was active in the human rights movement in India as a law student. She has a Master’s degree in International Law from the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands.
