Sixtine Vernet

Policy Support Officer

I am a Policy Support Officer at Finance for Peace. In my career, I have focused on finding ways to operationalize the development–peace nexus by working at non-governmental organisations or start-ups dedicated to harnessing sustainable development to empower local communities struggling with a lack of opportunities in fragile or conflict-affected contexts. Prior to joining Interpeace, I spent a few months at the United Nations, first at the Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, then within the prevention and sustaining peace section of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, where I learned first-hand about contemporary challenges to peace and security and about the United Nations toolbox for conflict response.

I have a bachelor’s degree in politics and international relations from the University of Bath (United Kingdom), and a master’s degree in international affairs from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva (Switzerland), for which I majored in global security.

I am thrilled to support Finance for Peace to bridge the gap in peacebuilding funding and promote sustainable development by channelling more private-sector funding into frontier markets according to peace-responsive principles.
