The initiative we are taking is to unite our common goals to take part in the struggle for social justice and our desire to promote human rights right up to the most marginalized communities.

 

The Franco-American dimension of our project gives it a multicultural hue that is particularly valuable for analyzing international law in its local application. It also allows us to enrich our own exchanges and knowledge, as well as to share the different resources in order to carry this project.

Who are we ?

InterCambio is an association of Law 1901, created in January 2017 by 4 friends, 3 are students of Sciences Po Lyon, and one at University in California Berkeley.

Chorkin

As a student at UC Berkeley, I decided to focus my studies in public health, psychology and human rights. I have always been an activist in promoting and respecting human rights locally and internationally. In addition to my involvement with Intercambio, I am also the associate director an organization called Project Pueblo, which is dedicated to providing students opportunities to assist in development projects in the Navajo Nation in Arizona.

Laura

In addition to my constant commitments to working with various causes in human rights, my five years at Sciences Po Lyon and the University of California, Berkeley have allowed me to discover my passions in the fight against discrimination and injustice. I am currently persuing a double degree at the University of Paris II Panthéon Assas within the master’s program for “Human Rights and Humanitarian Law”, I wish to specialize on the issue of the protection of human rights, particularly those of minorities and indigenous peoples.

Pénélope

I am currently a 4th year student at Sciences Po Lyon, and have a degree in philosophy. I have always been very passionate about ethical and social issues, especially in topics related to the recognition of minority rights. I have also been involved in several organizations dedicated to defending their rights in France and in Istanbul.

Eléa

My academic background – shared between Sciences Po Lyon, EM Lyon and Temple University – has spread over 3 continents and 3 fields of study: politics, entrepreneurship and filmmaking. My experiences and training have motivated me to discover and question the world around me, point out dysfunctions and taboos, share my feelings and thoughts.
