Mongui Ojong Eyumeneh

Cameroon | Graduated in 2017

Thoughts on the programme: I became interested in the programme because of its multidimensional approach of human rights. It is a programme I will recommend to anyone who wants to study human rights and build a career in human rights. It touches all aspects relating to Human Rights; Human Rights Law, Politics and the philosophical approach of human rights. Coming from a Law background, I got to learn about the political and philosophical approach of human rights, which has given me a broader scope and understanding of Human Rights.

My two years of studies was a wonderful experience. I encountered a friendly learning environment with very understanding professors and coordinator who are always there to help the students.

Professional background: Before my studies, I worked as a protection assistant with UNHCR Cameroon and also a voluntary human rights officer in Cameroon and Nakuru, Kenya. My goal is to acquire knowledge and experience in relation to the rights and protection of migrants and create an impact together with other professionals and experts in the field of migration and refugee protection which for some time has been a troubling aspect in the world at large. I am presently a PhD candidate at the Law Faculty of FAU, working on migration as my topic of research.
