Manon Fillonneau

12 November 2012

Manon Filloneau graduated with an MA in the field of “Political science and international relations” from Toulouse, France. Her masters thesis was about the right to work and the right to residency of Roma in France. After developing extensive but primarily academic knowledge about the situation of Roma in France, she thought that an experience with the ERRC could enlarge her understanding of Roma rights in Europe and that this internship seemed to be a good way to improve her knowledge and professional skills and get a good insight of what it is like to work in an NGO fighting for human rights at a European level.

Prior to her arrival at the ERRC, she completed a four-month internship in an organisation helping migrants in France through legal aid and strategic litigation. There she mainly worked with unaccompanied minors in Paris. This experience also encouraged her to learn more about Roma rights. Manon started her internship in July 2012, and has mainly worked on mapping advocacy areas of interest for achieving Roma rights in the European Union. This task has been as challenging as it has been interesting for her. “I really enjoy the work that I have been given.

In brief, being an intern at the ERRC completely matched my expectations as I am gaining more professional experience in an enjoyable working atmosphere while being in Budapest, a truly amazing city,” she states.
