Nouhaila first joined URBACT in November 2020. She is responsible for the design and implementation of the programme's digital communication strategy as well as the coordination of multiple capitalisation projects. Nouhaila has pursed a degree in international relations, politics & history before specialising in public policy and security affairs. She has a rich background in EU affairs and a deep passion for the design and development of EU public policy making-processes. While she grew up in Morocco, she has developed a dialectic perspective on the impacts of urban issues on social and cultural dynamics due to her experiences living in various cosmopolitan cities. Nouhaila is now based in Paris and is working under the Capitalisation and Communication Unit of the URBACT Secretariat.
