After graduating as a Doctor of Laws at the University of Malta in 2013, Isabelle moved to the United Kingdom to study for a Master of Laws specializing in Human Rights Law at the University of Nottingham. After graduating, she was offered an internship at the Educational Department of the Anne Frank Foundation in Amsterdam. Within the Educational Department she worked on various international human rights educational projects in different countries, and was also part of the team that created a United Nations’ award winning online learning tool called ‘Stories that Move: A Toolbox Against Discrimination’, where she helped create learning material online that teaches on discrimination, equality and human rights. In 2017 she moved back to Malta and started working as a human rights lawyer & educator. Since then, she has contributed to various workshops related to human rights and non-discrimination, having also graduated with a Master of Arts in English Literature from the University of Malta in 2020 where she focused her studies on literature as a cultural tool to investigate and engage with human rights in society.
