During his tenure with the Centre, he consistently displayed exceptional dedication, enthusiasm, a strong work ethic, professionalism, and a proactive approach to his tasks.
One of the key highlights of Leith’s internship was his successful completion of several important tasks. Notably, he demonstrated exemplary research and writing skills by composing a comprehensive background document for the panel event titled “Surveillance technologies and human rights: Beyond the security – freedom dilemma” on digital technology. This document provided event participants with a solid foundation of knowledge and set the stage for insightful discussions.
Furthermore, he diligently followed and meticulously provided us with summaries of two interactive debates held at the Human Rights Council (HRC). His well-crafted summaries focused on the discussions regarding Sudan and the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT). These summaries have allowed our audience to stay well-informed about these crucial discussions and the latest developments.
In addition to his exceptional research, Leith actively contributed to our Scientific Café Initiative. He willingly participated in an interview with Lucy Ntongai and skillfully distilled the essence of the conversation into a concise and engaging paragraph. His ability to capture complex information in an informative manner was evident in his valuable contribution.
