Aude Sany, Intern

Aude SANY will graduate from Sciences Po Paris' Master of Public Policies in June 2020. After studying in the preparatory classes "Khâgne B/L" (literature and social sciences) and obtaining two degrees in "Social Sciences" and "Law, Economics and Management", Aude SANY has followed a solid training in Public Law (Constitutional Law, Administrative Law and European Public Law).

After working with the journalist David Bornstein on documentary film projects on environmental topics, Aude SANY worked for the 'Centre de coopération internationale en recherche agronomique pour le développement' (CIRAD), as an intern in a scientific research project on agroecology in Kenya.
