In February Atieno Ndomo started at Bretton Woods Project in the position of Policy and Advocacy officer. A Kenyan citizen, she has extensive experience working in that region. In Kenya she has worked on human rights and constitutional reform, including as Coordinator of the Basic Rights Campaign, a joint NGO advocacy effort to push for access to water, shelter, education, food, health and information to be enshrined as basic rights in the Kenyan constitution.
Before joining Bretton Woods Project she was working in Uganda as Coordinator of the PANOS Governance, Leadership and Globalisation Programme which covered eight countries. Atieno will initially work on issues including parliamentary scrutiny of the World Bank and IMF, and the IMF’s roles in low-income countries.
She replaces Fabien Lefrancois who has moved to Argentina. At BWP he produced a series of briefings and played a major role in organising regional and global strategy meetings. He is currently available for short-term consultancy contracts on IFI-related issues.
