Marianne works as a human rights consultant to the Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor. Her interest in victim assistance was sparked by her involvement in the negotiations of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which was greatly supported by self-advocates. In 2010, Handicap International published her handbook on the CRPD: “Understanding the Convention” in English and French. Her support for ICBL-CMC focuses on further strengthening the human rights based approach to victim assistance and highlighting the various interlinkages between human rights and humanitarian law.
Marianne holds a Master’s and a SJD degree from the Law school of the University of Vienna as well as a Master’s in International Human Rights from the University of Notre Dame, Indiana.
