Claire Tixeire

Claire Tixeire joined ECCHR in 2011. Currently, she is a Senior Legal Advisor with the Institute for Legal Intervention, while she also works with the Business and Human Rights team. She has been managing the Critical Legal Training and ECCHR alumn* network since they have been created. From 2013-2018, she was the Director of the former Education Program.

Previously, Claire spent seven years working with the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) seeking criminal accountability of U.S. officials for war crimes and torture in the context of the “war on terror” (2004-2011). During six of these years, she also set up and led the permanent representation of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) before the United Nations in New York, conducting advocacy with human rights defenders from around the world. Claire obtained her masters in law and legal education from the universities of Panthéon-Sorbonne and of Nanterre in Paris (France), from the University of Kent at Canterbury (UK) and from the Université du Québec à Montréal (Canada). Since 2020, Claire works part-time as a freelance, fully accredited coach focusing on supporting individuals and organizations in the international human rights field and beyond.
