EITI Coordinator

Asmara Klein

As EITI Coordinator, Asmara provides support to the civil society members on the International EITI board – helping them coordinate and amplify civil society perspectives in International Board decision-making, report back to their national and regional constituencies and facilitate their participation in the various board committees. She also assists PWYP’s coalitions with the development and management of EITI focussed projects.

Prior to joining the PWYP team in December 2013 to act as EITI programme coordinator, Asmara Klein completed a PhD in politics and international relations at Sciences Po in Paris. Her doctoral research focused on the emergence of the transparency norm in the extractive industries and allowed Asmara to build an expertise on the EITI process, especially in Cameroon, where she conducted extended field work. Born to German parents, Asmara was raised in France and speaks fluent English, Spanish and decent Polish, which she learned while spending an Erasmus year in Warsaw.
