Phoebe Wynn-Pope (Fraser)'s Biography

Phoebe Wynn Pope (Fraser) has over 25 years experience in the humanitarian sector and has worked in complex humanitarian emergencies and conflict zones throughout Africa, the Middle East and Europe. This field work included working in Iran responding to the humanitarian impacts of the first Gulf War, and leading a humanitarian response to the Somali famine.

 

Phoebe also established programs in Bosnia Herzegovina during the armed conflict and worked in the Great Lakes region as part of the humanitarian response to the Rwandan genocide. Following this experience Phoebe returned to Australia to undertake a PhD in international law focussing on the role of the international community when confronting war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.

 

Previously Phoebe was a Principal Executive of Fundraising and Communications and from 1996-2002 Phoebe was the Commonwealth representative on the National Council for the Centenary of Federation. In this role she was Convenor of the Communications Committee and chaired the organising Committee of the Yeperenye Festival, the largest gathering of Aboriginal peoples since Federation.

 

Most recently, Phoebe was a founding Director of the Humanitarian Advisory group where her work focussed on the protection of civilians in armed conflict, the use of information technology for the prevention of mass atrocity crimes, as well as researching policy development for businesses operating in fragile and conflict affected states.

 

Inspired by the principle of humanity, Phoebe is committed to bringing her experience to the world's largest humanitarian organisation, and to working closely with Red Cross Red Crescent colleagues from around the world to address the increasing complexities and needs of the world's most vulnerable people.
