Born and raised in Greece, Marina Papazotou went on to pursue an extensive legal education. She got her first Law Degree from Aristotle University (GR), her LL.M in European Law from Leiden University (NL) and qualified as a lawyer after taking the Greek Bar Exam. However, she soon realised that something was missing so instead of settling into law practice, she went abroad looking for less conventional career opportunities. First, she did a Corporate Communications internship at Eurojust in The Hague. Then, she did a traineeship at the Protocol Service of the European Parliament in Brussels. Currently, she works at the Press Office of the Greek Embassy in London and she just completed a policy research on Gender Equality and Youth Employment. Marina seeks to explore the relation between human rights and culture, so after her participation to the HIA network, she plans to do a MA in Cultural Management.
