Marc DuBois

Marc DuBois, Executive Director, Médecins Sans Fontières visits De Montfort University to give a free lecture as part of the Distinguished Lecture Series.

Marc DuBois took over as Executive Director of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)
-UK in late March 2008. He joined MSF in 1999, landing as a project co-ordinator in Khartoum, Sudan, where he managed a basic healthcare program. Following Sudan, Marc went to Angola as a Humanitarian Affairs Officer and then moved to Amsterdam, spending over six years in the Humanitarian Affairs Department of MSF-Holland, first as an advisor and later as head of department and researcher.

Having grown up in suburban Philadelphia and receiving a degree in philosophy from Yale University (BA 1981), Marc then spent two and a half years organising chicken raising and well construction projects in rural peasant communities of Burkina Faso with the U.S. Peace Corps. After returning from Burkina Marc obtained an MA in development studies from the Institute of Social Studies in The Hague (1988) and later a degree in law from Columbia University in New York (JD 1994). He still considers himself a better bartender than humanitarian, and has been struggling to produce a collection of short stories dealing with aid workers in Africa.
