“I firmly believe in the Knowmad Institut’s focus to create knowledge that responds to the protection of human rights through an inter-generational and multidisciplinary approach. Not only so, but the founders focus on the inclusion of not only varying disciplines but life experience to enrich the perspectives and expertise of participants. I believe too, that the most powerful thing to affect change is to create knowledge that speaks to the truth of many people in the world and not a handful of gatekeepers that have shaped local and international policy for centuries.”
