Paul Miller is CRS' foreign aid advisor, based in Baltimore. His current position draws on more than 20 years of experience in relief, development and human rights.
Early in his career, he worked at the United Nations Secretariat in New York and then traveled to Haiti. There he served first as a volunteer with street children and later as special assistant to the USAID mission director in Port-au-Prince. When he returned to the United States, he continued his work with the Haitian refugee community in New York.
Mr. Miller joined CRS in 1987 and has served in a variety of positions overseas and in the United States. He was country representative in Senegal (where he helped to start CRS' first microfinance project in Africa), country representative in Brazil, senior Africa desk officer in headquarters, liaison to sister Catholic aid agencies in Europe, and director of strategic issues. He has also chaired the International Affairs Committee of the Caritas Internationalis Confederation.
During a three-year hiatus from the agency from 2003 to 2006, he managed projects on disability rights, helped advocate for the implementation of the Mine Ban Treaty and taught courses on the politics of humanitarian aid at the Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) of the Johns Hopkins University. From 2006 to 2010 he served as CRS' Africa team leader overseeing regional representatives for Africa and advisors on extractive industries and gender violence.
Mr. Miller holds a B.A. in history from Brown University and a master's degree in international affairs from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
