Florian Irminger moves from HRHF to Penal Reform International

September 19, 2018

In September 2018, Florian Irminger joined PRI as its Executive Director. He was previously the Head of Advocacy at Human Rights House Foundation (HRHF) in Geneva. Before joining HRHF, Florian co-founded ‘Stop Suicide’, a non-governmental organisation dedicated to the prevention of suicide among young people in Switzerland. Florian has been Chair of the Board of the House of NGOs in Geneva for four years. From 2009 to 2012, he was a member of the editorial team responsible for revising Geneva’s constitution, adopted in 2012, and was also a member of the young leaders’ programme of the World Economic Forum.

In his inaugural blog in PRI Newsletter, Florian reflects upon the organisation’s practical approach to penal reform, which has enabled PRI to play a key role in implementing international standards and provide effective and tailored solutions to criminal justice problems worldwide.
