Ariane is a multi-disciplinary practitioner focusing on equality and human rights. She is the Head of Legal and Programmes at the Equal Rights Trust, an organisation with a mission to combat discrimination and promote equality as a fundamental human right and a principle of social justice.
Ariane has been contracted to undertake human rights evaluations and to produce policy and research papers for international bodies and organisations, including the Open Data Charter, Open Society Foundations, the Institute of War and Peace Reporting, the Freedom Online Coalition and Global Partners Digital. In 2019 she was a Legal Adviser at Amnesty International, where her thematic portfolio was focused on the rights to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, expression, association and privacy
Between 2016 and 2017, Ariane led Reprieve’s work in Malawi assisting prisoners benefiting from the decision in Kafantayeni & Others v The Attorney General of Malawi (Constitutional Case No. 12 of 2005), by which the mandatory death sentence was ruled unconstitutional. During her time at Reprieve, Ariane worked with the Malawi Human Rights Commission and other local partners to secure new sentences for 51 prisoners; 24 of these individuals have received custodial sentences that led to their immediate release.
