For as long as she can remember, Victoria has been interested in how conflicts arise and how they can be transformed. Having experienced conflict growing up in Northern Ireland, she trained as a barrister and wrote her PhD thesis about conflict transformation in European countries.
Victoria has worked with NGOs, international organisations, governments and educational institutions. She served as a human rights and property rights advisor for the UN and the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Kosovo when the country declared its independence. She was recently the researcher and lead writer for the UN's most extensive report on SDG 16 so far. She is a sought-after expert on corruption risk assessments and judicial reform. She is also an experienced trainer, tutor and facilitator, including on systems thinking.
Outside of work, Victoria loves to run, be with her husband and kids and begin as many days as possible with yoga.
