Jane F. Barry
 
Human rights activist and author, Jane Barry, is a principal at Seattle-based consulting firm Linksbridge. Jane has more than 10 years of experience consulting to leading international organizations and non-profits on humanitarian aid, development assistance, and human rights, specializing in the intersections of peace, security and gender. She is passionate about supporting the well-being and security of human rights defenders globally, and has designed and co-facilitated a series of workshops on integrated security and sustaining activism for human rights defenders from Asia, the former Soviet Union, Latin America and Africa.

An integrated security method, developed in partnership with the Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation and the Urgent Action Fund for Women's Human Rights, has now reached over 1,000 human rights defenders in more than 50 countries. Jane's recent publications include: Integrated Security: The Manual; Insiste, Persiste, Resiste, Existe (with Vahida Nainar); What's the Point of the Revolution if We Can't Dance? with Jelena Djordjevic, and Rising up in Response: Women's Rights Activism in Conflicts.

Jane has worked in the former Soviet Union, the Balkans and Africa. She holds a Certificate in International Human Rights Law and Practice from the London School of Economics (LSE) and a BA from Middlebury College in Soviet Studies.

For her passionate activism in support of human rights, peace, security and gender related issues, Jane Barry has been selected by TheWIFTS Foundation to receive the 2013 Humanitarian Award.
