Alix Valenti

Independent Consultant

I have several years experience conducting projects for the European Commission on a wide range of topics such as migration, education and training, and employment. 

In addition, I have extensive experience in the peace building, urban development and peacekeeping domains with a specific focus on the Asia Pacific region, notably the Philippines, Thailand and Timor Leste. I have also published widely on defence and security issues in the Asia Pacific and beyond, specifically focusing on naval and maritime security issues, defence procurement and peacekeeping and peace enforcement.

I am fluent in four languages (English, French, Spanish and Italian) and have developed basic skills in Portuguese and Tetun whilst in Timor Leste.
