Mike joined the ILC team in 2006, having previously worked with the Botswana government and UNDP. He became Director of the Secretariat in 2015. His passion for land rights grew out of his upbringing in a small village in Botswana, building a firm conviction that land rights are fundamental to building a more just and inclusive world. The best thing about this job, he says, is the opportunity to work with so many inspiring organisations, communities and individuals across the globe who are leading a bottom-up revolution for change!
He holds a PhD in Social Anthropology and a BSc in Environmental Science.
