Welcome to our newest secretariat member, Abby Fogarty


‘Joining the GISF team is so incredible. I’m really looking forward to being involved in upcoming projects and events.’

Abby graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Politics in 2018, focusing specifically on sexual violence as a tactic of war in conflict zones. Whilst focusing on this topic, Abby developed her knowledge and enthusiasm for the humanitarian sphere, graduating with a Master of Arts (MA) in Humanitarianism and Conflict response from the University of Manchester in 2021. Abby’s focus during her master’s was the unethical use of Artificial Intelligence to identify and target ethnic minorities in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region.

Abby also has several years of experience working in the mental health sector alongside her studies and is passionate about advocacy and empowerment of vulnerable individuals accessing mental health services.

As Admin Officer, Abby will provide administrative support to the GISF secretariat.
