Ms. Fynn holds a BSc (Ghana), BA (UBC), MPH (Nottingham), LLM (York), and currently doing her PhD in Indigenous Studies and Law at the Australian National University with research focused on “Gender Violence and the ‘Rule of Law’ in Indigenous Communities of Post-War Liberia.” In 2010, with full tuition scholarship, Ms. Fynn completed a semester as a visiting research scholar at Georgetown Law Centre in Washington DC under tutelage of professors Larry Gostin and Oscar Cabrera. That same year, she also received certificates in South African Constitution Law in Comparative Context and International Alternate Dispute Resolution, having completed studies at the Mandela Institute of University of Witwatersrand, in South Africa. In 2008, she co-founded EV Research with the goal of reducing the 10/90 R&D gap between resource poor communities and advanced countries. Before law school, she worked as a research analyst with the BC Government’s Office to Combat Trafficking in Persons. She also worked with the Migration Health Department of the International Organization for Migration in Geneva where she developed a policy document on Health Consequences of Human Trafficking. She is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Internal Displacement, the first and only academic scholarship committed to the plight of internally-displaced persons. As an undergraduate student at UBC, she founded Africa Awareness, a student-driven initiative, responsible for the establishment of the first interdisciplinary African Studies Program at UBC. In her spare time, if she’s not blogging on the Rights of Women in War; then she’s either dancing, biking, or running half-marathons. Veronica is a born and bred Liberian.
