Ms Lisa Montel
French LLB LLM GDL
CONCORD Programme, and PhD Student
I come from a legal background and specialised in Human Rights during my Masters in the Netherlands. I volunteered in Burkina Faso in a Health and Education Centre and taught French and Maths to children with no opportunities.
For two years, I embarked in a journey to advocate for the rights of persons with disabilities at the United Nations in Geneva, and here at the School with the Centre for Evidence in Disability. I conducted a global consultation project on inclusion of persons with disabilities in low and middle income countries. You can find the report here.
I am now working with the Cancer Survival Group. I am the CONCORD Programme Manager responsible for the administrative management of the study and all CONCORD-related projects. I liaise with our collaborators across 70 countries.
In January 2018, I also started a PhD combining both my legal background and my experience in global health. I am looking at the human right to health for cancer patients and how laws and policies impact health outcomes, in particular survival.
