Theologia Iliadou

Hello and welcome to my web page!

I just completed my PhD in the PAIS department of the University of Warwick and have started my own consulting firm GenSec Consulting.

I have a background in organizational design, human resources management and labour rights, and an in-depth knowledge on the globalization of production and global supply chains. As a political scientist, having developed an interest in the intersection between labour rights, globalization and gender, I wrote my thesis on the national and international management of unregulated economic migration with a focus on gender and through the lens of security. My interests, experience and knowledge extend to topics such as anti-trafficking (labour and sex), refugees, gender based violence and female political participation.

Through an active presence, as a paper presenter and delegate, in international conferences and workshops, I remain up to date with global and regional legislative, as well as practical developments, and expand GenSec's network with global contacts.

Parallel to my research activities, I have been working as an advisor and consultant for developmental and anti-trafficking NGOs based in USA, Europe, Africa and Asia helping them develop their partnerships with the private sector and strengthen their political advocacy agendas. My collaborations with NGOs working with vulnerable population groups in developing and post-conflict countries in Europe, Africa and the Caribbean, have provided me with the opportunity to engage with the corporate responsibility agenda of the private sector in seeking to establish partnerships with NGOs and civil society as part of their Creating Shared Values Strategies and in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As an experienced trainer and educator, I am currently working with associates for the development of gender equality and anti-trafficking professional training packages.
