After a long career as a lawyer and public servant, Paulette Lenert has only recently decided to get actively engaged in political liffe. We are looking forward to discover her motivations and experiences after her first year in the Government.  Mrs Lenert will share with us her views on the challenges of consumer protection and the need to create an independent Ministry that is able to cope with them.  She will describe current priorities linked to the Luxembourg development aid and address the topic of her announced move to the Ministry of Health.

In 1997, she was appointed First Judge of the Administrative Tribunal and served as vice president until 2010. From 2010 to 2013, she was senior government advisor to the Minister Delegate of Solidarity Economy.

Following the reshuffle of the ministerial departments in 2013, she joined the Ministry of the Civil Service and Administrative Reform in the function of senior government advisor and was in charge of the general coordination as of 2014.
