The CRRF welcomes Narjes Guetat!
Driven by her passion for social justice, Narjes Guetat has pursued legal studies in both Tunisia and Canada. She holds a master’s degree in international law from the Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Law. Her research focused on the Safe Third Country Agreement and its disproportionately negative effects on women fleeing gender-based violence.
After graduating, Narjes joined Amnistie internationale Canada francophone as a tactical campaigns and crisis response intern. She was later entrusted with coordinating the drafting and publication of the Human Rights Agenda, an advocacy document taking stock of human rights in Canada in 2021. Narjes then became in charge of mobilization and human rights education, which brought her even closer to a diverse public and enabled her to contribute to the promotion of human rights within schools, universities, and local groups across Quebec. During her time at Amnistie internationale, Narjes also co-created pedagogical tools that simplify international law concepts related to various human rights issues, including racial discrimination.
Whether in person, virtual or hybrid formats, Narjes is no stranger to event planning. On various occasions, she organized and led awareness-raising workshops, youth training camps and governance events.
Narjes believes in the importance of collective action, and plays her part by mobilizing people and knowledge, building partnerships, and participating in dialogue groups working on causes close to her heart.
In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering, learning languages, and Montreal’s cultural scene.
Eager to contribute to the team’s success in supporting initiatives for a Canada free of systemic racism and hate, she looks forward to putting her experience and enthusiasm to good use in her new role as Program Manager (Quebec).
