Myriam had already been working with communication for social change and advocacy for many years before she enrolled on the Communication for Development Masters programme with Malmö University. She worked on a number of high profile campaigns with organizations such as Jubilee 2000 and OneWorld International and is now a consultant specializing in evaluation and strategy.

A friend recommended the ComDev course with Malmö University and Myriam joined the part-time distance learning programme in 2008. During her two years of part-time study Myriam continued to work as a communications consultant. At the moment Myriam is working on a project evaluating a Council of Europe campaign aimed at promoting inter-cultural dialogue and anti-racisim.

Myriam competed the ComDev masters programme in January this year when she submitted her final masters thesis ‘Rap: A tool for promoting change amongst youth in West Africa? The case of AURA’s Poto Poto project’.

I caught up with Myriam after her examination just as she was finishing the final revisions to her thesis. You can find out more about Myriam, her final project and her reflections on her two years as a ComDev student here
