About the author
From 1999 until 2005 she was charged to support Romania in its efforts to reform their child protection system. Due to pressure from outside and inside the EU she was no longer able to work inside the European Commission on children’s rights. As a result, the European Commission seconded her to Against Child Trafficking (ACT).
She is the author of ‘Romania for Export Only – the untold story of the Romanian ‘orphans’ (2007).
Roelie is a graduate of the Amsterdam University, where she studied political science.
