Madeline England, 27, is currently pursuing a master's of international affairs with a concentration in human rights at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs.

Madeline is an AP Peace Fellow this summer, working with the Home for Human Rights (HHR), an AP partner organization in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Her goals include working with the HHR staff to advocate for victims of torture, raise awareness on national and international levels of ongoing human rights violations, and promote accountability for the perpetrators of those violations.

After receiving a BA in economics from Mount Holyoke College in 2002, Madeline worked as a legal assistant for a London law firm and as an outreach coordinator for the Women’s Anti-Violence Education program in Philadelphia.

From 2004 to 2006, she served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Mauritania, West Africa, where she worked in small business development with female entrepreneurs helping to coordinate marketing campaigns and business plans. She also managed a mentoring center to encourage girls’ education for a local high school.

Madeline’s graduate studies focus on the link between human rights violations and conflict. Since human rights abuse often instigates or exacerbates violence, she hopes that documenting human rights abuse, raising public awareness, advocating justice and promoting community reconciliation efforts will advance the resolution of conflict.

Any donations to support Madeline’s work are appreciated.
