Binaifer Nowrojee is a long-time member of the Soros family's inner circle.

The Soros family’s globalist and left-liberal foundation, the Open Society Foundations, has announced that Indian-Kenyan human rights lawyer Binaifer Nowrojee will now lead its work.

The board has unanimously agreed that Ms Nowrojee will replace Mark Malloch-Brown, who is stepping down this summer.

– She embodies the spirit of OSF, past and present. I am confident she will ably lead OSF into the challenging next phase of our work, said Chairman Alexander Soros in a press release.

– When I established the Open Society Foundations, I wanted them to be truly global. At the outset, that was merely an aspiration. But now I feel that this ambition has been fulfilled with Binaifer Nowrojee as president of the Foundations, supported by an international team, added father George Soros.

“The international liberal order”

Ms Nowrojee is no newcomer to the Soros sphere, having previously held a number of senior positions, including head of the foundation’s East Africa division and regional director for Asia Pacific. She also has an extensive background as a consultant and lawyer for various human rights organisations, including as an expert witness at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.

She says she is looking forward to be “heading this remarkable institution”, which she describes as “the world’s largest funder of human rights”, and that it is “by far the biggest and best challenge” she has faced in her career.

– I am proud of what we have done to prepare the organisation for a future very different from its past. It is a future in which all the obvious truisms of the international liberal order have been turned on their head and we have had to reinvent how we promote human rights and open societies, said outgoing President Mallock-Brown.

Binaifer Nowrojee is a descendant of Indian migrants who arrived in Kenya in 1896. Her father, Pheroze Nowrojee, is also a human rights lawyer and advisor to the supreme court of Kenya.
