Natalie Raaber
Consultant

Natalie is a researcher and policy analyst and has worked together with feminist and women’s rights groups, social justice actors, the UN, and government on a range of policy issues. At GNWP, Natalie's research has focused on financing for gender equality and women’s rights in the context of peace and security discussions, with an emphasis on financing for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325.  Previously, her work examined the impact of the 2008 financial/economic crisis on women's rights and explored alternatives to profit-led development. Natalie's work has also aimed to advance a rights-based critique to aid effectiveness and development cooperation debates within the UN Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).  Her interests are wide and fall within the intersection of political economy, epistemology, and movement building. She currently lives in New York and holds degrees from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the University of Michigan.
