Caitlin Ryan

Migration campaign manager
Medecins Sans Frontieres

Caitlin Ryan is currently migration campaign manager for Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) and has been running the @MSF_Sea twitter account for two years.

Having grown up in the toxic migration debate that continues to rage in Australia, she does not shy away from difficult questions and is prepared to take anti-migration activists and trolls head on, correct “alternative facts” and engage in serious conversation about the so-called European migration crisis with “heart and snark”. Before moving to Europe to work on migration she worked with MSF in West Africa during the Ebola crisis, spent time in Kenya focusing on adolescent sexual health and worked with migrant and refugee women in Australia.
