Ms Pujolle was previously Deputy Director of the Centre of Prospective Analysis at the French foreign ministry and has extensive knowledge of the development sector, as well as that of Central and Sub-Saharan Africa where she has held various positions with wide-ranging responsibilities.

She has also served as advisor to the French development minister. Ms Pujolle is the author of L’Afrique noire, le développement confisqué (Flammarion, 1994) and Lutter contre un monde inégal (Milan, 1998).
