Paulin Muhozi is a founding member of iPeace and currently serves as the organization's Vice President.
Paulin was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and lived there for over 15 years before beginning his legal education at the National University of Rwanda.
Since earning his license to practice Law in Rwanda in 2005, Paulin has trained community associations on how to properly administer justice at the grassroots level. He has also served as a practicing lawyer in Rwanda for over five years.
Paulin actively continues to expand his legal knowledge and expertise by attending trainings annually. For example, in 2007, Paulin attended a training led by Avocats Sans Frontieres on violence committed by children and, in 2009, he participated in a training on the rights of the accused during an investigation. Paulin also attended a seminar in 2011 led by the East African Law Society in Kigali on the role of justice in the politics of regional integration.
Having been born in the DRC and having lived there for a substantial portion of his life, Paulin often considers the need for justice in his home country. Therefore, it is no surprise that he strongly supports iPeace’s initiatives to pursue its mission and spread its work across Africa’s Great Lakes Region.
Paulin is fluent in French, Swahili and Kinyarwanda. Paulin also holds strong communication skills in English.
