Eve Geddie
PICUM Programmes Director

Eve currently leads PICUM’s project on Undocumented Migrant Women. She joined the PICUM team in January 2007, working on the access to health care project before twice serving as Acting Director (maternity-leave replacement). Prior to this, Eve worked in Ireland’s community development and NGO sector, providing services to disadvantaged groups and also campaigning for regularisation. She holds a European Master’s Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC, Venice, Italy) and a BA(Hons First Class), in English, Media and Cultural Studies (DLIADT, Dublin).

The Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM) was founded in 2001 as an initiative of grassroots organisations. Now representing a network of more than 160 organisations and 160 individual advocates working with undocumented migrants in 38 countries, primarily in Europe as well as in other world regions, PICUM has built a comprehensive evidence base regarding the gap between international human rights law and the policies and practices existing at national level. With over ten years of evidence, experience and expertise on undocumented migrants, PICUM promotes recognition of their fundamental rights, providing an essential link between local realities and the debates at policy level.
