Focus 

Alexia Falisse joined ClientEarth in May 2020 as Programme Officer for the Fossil Fuel Infrastructure and Energy System and State Aid team. Since May 2021, Alexia is supporting the Energy Systems team doing research into a diversity of energy issues, and especially on energy democracy.

Experience

Before joining ClientEarth, Alexia coordinated a programme to support human rights and environmental defenders at risk with Justice and Peace Netherlands, then worked for two years in Uganda with Avocats Sans Frontières, focusing on ensuring access to justice for communities affected by oil and mineral exploitation. Seeing the very concrete consequences of environmental destruction and climate change on people’s lives around the world, she wanted use her experience and knowledge to contribute to tackling the root causes of those issues.

Education and Training

Alexia holds a Bachelor’s Degree in German Linguistics and Literature, as well as a Master’s Degree in European Studies from the UCLouvain (Belgium). She also did an LLM in Public International Law at the London School of Economics.

I believe ClientEarth’s work truly makes a difference in shaping today’s environmental and climate policies. Being part of this organisation is a way for me to concretely contribute to protecting the planet, and ensuring it remains a habitable place for all.
