Martine Cassar

Director of Social Investments
Applied Value Group

Martine, a human rights lawyer by profession with a specialization in Human rights and Humanitarian law, has an extensive background in working with humanitarian causes. She comes most recently from a position as the Ambassador to the UNSC Bid, within the Government of Malta. Prior to that, she was appointed as the Commissioner for Refugees where she headed the agency responsible for determining the protection claims raised by asylum seekers in Malta, as well as provided policy direction to Government on asylum law and policies, when needed. In 2014, Martine headed the International Organization of Migration Country Office in her home country Malta where she was responsible for overseeing and implementing a number of projects in the fields of integration, counter-trafficking, return and resettlement to the US.
Given her background, Martine will channel her expertise into widening the scope of CSR within the AV group to also extend to the fields of integration of third country nationals. Her immediate focus will be to launch a pilot project with newly arrived Swedes to accelerate their integration into the Swedish job market through skills training.
Martine will be based out of our Stockholm office but will work globally across the AV Group.
