About me

Dr Fidèle Mutwarasibi is a visiting Research Fellow in the Open University's Centre for Voluntary Sector Leadership.

Fidèle has worked in the voluntary sector for over 25 years. His experience include working in community development (Rwanda); emergency and relief (Democratic Republic of Congo); research, community engagement, equality and anti-discrimination, fundraising, programme management, and policy and advocacy (Ireland). Since moving to the UK, he has been active in Citizens:MK and Citizens UK, among others. In the UK, his focus has been on refugees, equality, diversity and hate crime. His social practices are underpinned by his passion and interest in human rights, diversity, immigration, integration, equality and social cohesion, community organising, identity and citizenship, leadership and capacity building.

His doctoral research explored the activation and strategies deployed  by migrant activists who have made a significant contribution in conventional and infra politics in Ireland. He has published extensively and contributed to public debate on immigration, integration, equality, diversity and social cohesion. His current research interests include: refugee/migrant led organisations; emerging social movements in response to the migration crisis; leadership in the voluntary sector; links between service delivery and advocacy by the third sector; social partnerships; social entrepreneurship and social economy; civil society’s response to populism and alternative truths. 

Fidèle is a member of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission and a Principal Consultant at DILEAS Consulting. Over the last number of years he has undertaken consultancy assignments. His current and previous clients include: the Institute of Public Affairs (PL), the Centre for Public Policy – PROVIDUS (LV), Dublin City Council (IE), Fingal Council (IE), the Immigrant Council of Ireland (IE), Diversity in Public Appointments (UK) and Fair Trials International (UK).
