Besides being a lawyer, Dona Hariri is one of the most wanted and popular in Sweden when it comes to organizing panels and debates, hosting lectures and TV-shows. She is often described as being a crucial voice for the most marginalized groups in society.
With her very hands-on approach to helping others with legal advice (for example spending 220 days at the Central Station in Stockholm, helping refugees) and her strong commitment to human rights, she not only re-imagines what law is and what can be created with law, but continuously push democracy forward.
In 2018, Dona Hariri was named one of the most powerful women in Sweden, among numerous prestigious awards over the years, and has also written a book to give people a better understanding of the Swedish law (“Fatta lagen!”).
