Narratives: Philip Amaral, Policy & Advocacy Officer, JRS-Europe, Brussels

Most of my workdays are spent in front of a computer. This is not a complaint; merely a mere statement of fact. As a policy and advocacy officer for JRS-Europe, my tasks are more research- and policy-intensive than people-intensive. Of course, part of my job is to meet policymakers. But if I were to spend all my time doing that, then I wouldn’t be able to fulfill my other tasks – and for that I must sit in front of a computer.
