As Programs Manager at the Fund For Peace (FFP), Hannah works across their security and human rights, conflict early warning and response, and peace building programs in West Africa. As part of the Sustainable Development and Security program, she co-leads many of FFP's security & human rights implementation projects, including training programs and site-level assessments in partnership with various international oil and mining companies, governments, and multilateral institutions around the world. Hannah is currently the Project Manager for a FFP project which works with civil society in Ghana to develop awareness of the Voluntary Principles on Security & Human Rights (VPs) in mining affected communities through training and multi-stakeholder dialogues. She supports FFP's representation on the VPs Steering Committee and manages FFP's Security, Rights & Development Roundtable. Prior to joining the FFP, Hannah managed multimillion dollar capital projects for the Parliament of New South Wales in Australia, and helped design and implement their emergency and security management policy framework. Hannah holds a BA Communications (Social Inquiry) from the University of Technology Sydney, and a Masters of International Relations (U.S. Studies) from the University of Sydney.
