Change can only be achieved if all relevant actors and interest groups act at eye level and together. This also applies to trade policy - as a strong driver for development.
Right from the start of her studies, Zara Grauer knew exactly what she wanted: to work in an international context. Consequently, she completed her international master’s degree in Agricultural and Food Economics. In her master’s thesis, she analyzed the political framework of organic agriculture in Indonesia. Before she became part of the Andreas Hermes Academy team, she worked for GIZ in the field of agricultural trade. And because agricultural trade policy in particular is her favorite topic, she supervises this area for us and supports farmers’ organizations in developing their trade policy competencies.
