Friederike Röder is ONE France Director.
Friederike earned her degree in political science from Sciences Po Paris and Freie Universität Berlin. Since then, she has worked in development: first within the OECD on good governance and fragile states, then as an advisor on the same matters to the German ministry of development cooperation. She then moved to South Africa to work with the African Union, most notably the Pan-African Parliament. Upon her return to Europe, she joined the Arab Reform Initiative, a think tank working on political reforms in North Africa and the Middle East. Other initiatives she was involved with include the German President’s Initiative for a Partnership with Africa and the European Former Leaders’ Group mediating in the Israel-Palestine conflict. She has been with ONE since April 2011, first as advocacy and policy manager and since November 2013 as director.
ONE is an international campaigning and advocacy organization of more than 6 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa… because the facts show extreme poverty has already been cut by 60% and can be virtually eliminated by 2030, but only if we act with urgency now.
