Publications/articles include The New Humanitarian Basics, The Ebola Response in West Africa: Exposing the politics and culture of international aid and Humanitarian Action: The need to scale back, not up.
Prior to consulting, Marc spent 15 years at Médecins sans Frontières, working primarily in policy, advocacy and humanitarian affairs, before becoming the Executive Director of MSF-UK/IE (2008-14). The early years of this trajectory saw Marc combat housing discrimination as a Skadden Fellow based in New Orleans and raising chickens as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Burkina Faso.
