Andrea Saldarriaga is an international lawyer and her practice has focused on international investment law and business and human rights. In 2007, after spending several years working in a Colombian law firm and later at the international firm Freshfields, Bruckhaus Deringer, Andrea launched her practice as an independent consultant. Since then, she has been working on a range of projects with international organisations, the private sector, not-for-profit and academic institutions in her areas of expertise. Andrea was the co-lead of the Investment and Human Rights Project at the LSE from 2013-2016. She is currently a member of the roster of experts to the Project Complaint Mechanism at the European Bank of Reconstruction and she also teaches business and human rights at ESSEC Business School in Paris and ESCP Business School Europe.
While a Visiting Fellow, Andrea's work will focus on the management of the Investment and Human Rights Learning Hub, a key resource for States, companies, lawyers, academics and civil society. She will also work on developing effective tools for executive training on business and human rights, among a range of other initiatives on investment and human rights.
