Funding: Louis Dreyfus

The vast developmental inequalities apparent across the African continent shaped Isaac’s decision to study for an MSc in African Studies, which he did as Louis Dreyfus Weidenfeld scholar during the 2014-15 academic year. In 2015 he has been awarded a second scholarship by the Louis Dreyfus Foundation to pursue an MPP at the Blavatnik School of Government.

He received his Bachelor’s degree from the the Euro-African programme at Sciences Po in 2014. Isaac interned for a joint programme led by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in partnership with the Provincial Government of Katanga in the Democratic Republic of Congo. During a previous internship at the Provincial Government of Katanga, Isaac participated in the planning and implementation of various government projects, events and conferences across the province in the education, transport and energy sectors.

After obtaining his degree at Oxford, Isaac would like to work towards ensuring food security through the Ministry of Agriculture in his native Congo.
