Esther Soulard


I joined IOD Parc as a consultant in November 2023 to undertake research, monitoring, and evaluation as well as to provide particular support to the Australasia Strategy within the Asia-Pacific region. My areas of interest include criminal justice, governance and Human Rights in West Africa and the Indo-Pacific.

I have five years of experience in international security and cooperation, specifically in researching and developing contextual analyses as part of project development as well as in facilitating monitoring, evaluation, and reporting actions.

I was previously working at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) on strengthening criminal justice cooperation along trafficking routes in Latin America, the Caribbean and West Africa. I have a Masters in International Security from the Paris School of International Affairs, Sciences Po Paris, as well as a Bachelor in the Humanities and Social Sciences from Sciences Po Paris.
