Brandon Green is a first year Master of Human Rights and Humanitarian Action student at Sciences Po. Before his foray into academics, he worked for years as a paramedic in the US. While working on an ambulance, Brandon saw the ways that policies made in distant capitals impact the lives of people. As a result, he seeks to address the structural causes of precariousness, vulnerability, and marginalisation.

He graduated summa cum laude from the University of Colorado at Denver in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts (International Studies). He has also worked as a volunteer, in the leadership development team, and as a consultant with the Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking, a non-profit advocacy and research organisation committed to ending human trafficking and expoitation. His research interests lie at the intersection of forced migration, international relations, and human rights.
