Annuka Bathija


Annuka Bathija is an intern for NeoHumanitas. She will soon start a Master at the Graduate Institute of International and Development studies (Geneva), in the department of Anthropology and Sociology of Development. She holds a Bachelor of Science (Forensic Anthropology). Her bachelors project explored solutions to avoid radiography, which is currently used to estimate age of asylums seekers without official documentation. She looked more precisely at the age estimation based on the patterns of ossification of the laryngeal cartilages. This research sensititzes her on some socio- ethical issues related to the application of emerging technologies on human beings. She has worked at the UNESCO (Paris) on Gender equality, as well as with two NGO’s based in London. The first one (SafeHands for Mothers) deals with making pregnancy safer in developing countries. The second (The Orchid Project) focuses in ending Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting. In addition to her work at NeoHumanitas, she is currently working as an intern at the UNFPA (New York), where her work focuses on the youth involvement in ending FGM/C.
