Isabella Leyh

Senior Programme Analyst

Isabella's passion for strengthening accountability to affected populations in the humanitarian sector was shaped by her academic and practical experiences. In her master’s thesis, she explored to what extent INGO branding could be used to include affected people in dialogue and ultimately in the decisions that govern their lives. Working for an NGO in Lima, Peru, and in a refugee camp on Leros, Greece, further reinforced her commitment to accountability to those at the receiving end of aid. She holds a bachelor's in international business from Maastricht University, a bachelor's in politics and modern history from the University of Manchester, and a master's in international development and humanitarian emergencies from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
