BA (Hons) (International Relations and Politics), MSc (Conflict Resolution)
Fred joined the CCRI in December 2020. Having finished his MSc from the University of Amsterdam in 2014, he has held numerous research positions in Universities and NGOs. These include researching health inequalities for people with learning disabilities, workers’ rights within global food supply chains, LGBTQ+ and Child Rights in UK Overseas Territories, and the integration of refugees and asylum seekers with local communities. What ties these diverse topics together is a passion to investigate and tackle inequalities and vulnerabilities.
Fred’s research interests lay in the role rural communities can play in integrating migrants and the sustainable agricultural practices in the production of mezcal in Mexico.
