Mira has previously supported the litigation and advocacy work surrounding EU Deforestation Regulation work in Europe. Now, she is responsible for managing a network of partners and driving project strategy and implementation for the forest-governance work in South East Asia.


Mira’s early professional experience ranges from legal research and project implementation at MSD, a local NGO in Ethiopia aimed at countering human-trafficking. After her studies, she conducted counter-terrorist research at the UN agency for Transnational Crime and Justice in Turin. Later on, before joining ClientEarth, she was involved in project scoping for the NGO, People’s Planet Project, focused on using the power of evidence based storytelling through indigenous rights advocacy, geospatial data analysis and environmental law to achieve sustainable policy change on land rights and combat deforestation and human rights violations.


Mira undertook a BA in International Law at University College Utrecht where she also carried out an exchange semester at the University of California (UCSB) focusing on Environmental Politics and Philosophy of Law. She then went on to get to get an LLM in Criminal Justice at a UN mandated Masters of law by Universidad de la Paz and an MSc. in City Resilience Design and Management at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya focusing on resilient policy response to issues affecting global systems.

Working at ClientEarth is more than inspiring, the work consists of a constant immersion of passionate and ambitious people ready to use and improve the tools at hand to fight for a better world which is what truly makes it feel empowering
