Juliet is an educationalist who joined the Lemon Tree Team in January 2016, with particular responsibility for the monitoring and evaluation of Lemon Tree’s work and for developing innovative ways of disseminating this to audiences where it can have greatest impact.
Prior to her work at Lemon Tree Trust she managed a community university partnership and an international helpdesk on research and knowledge exchange. She has more than 20 years’ experience in many parts of Africa and the Middle East, India, Myanmar and Nepal working more recently with issues of education and community engagement in conflict and fragile states. She favours co-constructed and participatory research methodologies, and experiential and reflective approaches to teaching and learning. Her current research areas involve higher education and its role in conflict and migration and the psychosocial significance of gardening in crisis. Her recent book (published by Routledge in 2017) is called Universities and Conflict: the role of higher education in peacebuilding and resistance.
