Dr Julia Murphy recruited by International Committee of Red Cross

Julia Murphy, a recently completed doctoral candidate with ISE has been recruited to become field delegate for the ICRC following an intense 'recruitment day' in Geneva at the International Committee of the Red Cross headquarters in April.

Julia will have to wait - probably quite a few months - before being sent on a mission. For Julia this is an extremely fascinating job and highly competitive (apparently, the ICRC receives over 15,000 applications per year). She will either be visiting detainees or prisoners of war in prison, working on family reunification after a conflict, or promoting international humanitarian law. She is absolutely thrilled about the outcome of what was a very long recruitment process (it started in December 2016).

Julia was informed about this good news just the day before her commencement which was a perfect conclusion to her time at ISE. All her friends and colleagues at ISE wish her all the best for the future!
