Beti Baraki is an analyst with a strong background in women’s rights and strong experience in qualitative research – literature review, focus groups, interviews. She applies research to understanding social problems such as gendered-based violence, hardship crisis, marginalisation, and poverty. At NEF Consulting, she has worked on the impact of several programmes working with vulnerable groups.

Previously she worked at Southall Black Sisters as a Women’s Advocate where she provided high quality comprehensive and practical advocacy support relating to gender-based violence against women and children, including forced marriage, female genital mutilation and ‘honour’-based violence.

Beti was also part of the policy advisory team for the Women’s Equality Party where she advised on equality matters and researched the links between the representation of women and girls in the media and violence against women and girls.

Beti earned her BA in Politics and International Studies at Warwick University and MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy at LSE.
