Clara Dybbroe Viltoft

development consultant

f(l)air consult is a consultancy platform that offers a range of services in the fields of development, human rights and social justice.

I work with you and not for you, with the aim of empowering my clients - while assisting them in reaching their goals.

I believe in cooperation, in active and global citizenry, and in equality and inclusion when we work towards transformation together.



“I founded f(l)air consult so that I could consolidate my work and professional competences with allies, networks, and passion projects. This company is literally a manifestation of how I have organised my life.”

I have worked and volunteered in the non-profit sector for almost 10 years with various human rights and social justice initiatives besides acquiring a BA in Peace and Conflict Studies with additional International Law courses.

While obtaining my Masters of Philosophy in Criminology, Law, and Society at University of Cape Town, I engaged with NGOs such as Scalabrini Centre of Cape Town, Lawyers for Human Rights and Cape Mental Health.

Besides regularly engaging in academia as a writer, peer reviewer and speaker, I work on a variety of projects and tasks related to migrancy, integration, historically marginalized and -oppressed populations drawing on theory and methods from the fields of human rights, development and social justice, crime, conflict, and violence.

Working with you and not for you

Whether I am your extra set of hands for a week or a project manager for a longer period, with me on board, you can expect that me to be hardworking and dedicated to your task(s).


My approach is flexible and creative and I pride myself in my ability to collaborate and (co-)create solutions. I see people and potential, and I am able to navigate in complex organisational structures, taking into the equation the people, their backgrounds and different opinions while seeing the synergy in cross-sectoral and multidisciplinary work.


I am systematic and persistent. I approach my tasks in structure manner, which reduces the complexity of the task and allows me to focus on the matter at hand. I am able to navigate disagreements and am handle unforeseen challenges with a friendly and firm demeanour.


I learn on my multidisciplinary background and utilise theories and methods such as: critical and feminist theories, human rights frameworks, rights based approach, do-no-harm, outcome harvesting, logic framework approach, theory of change and systems and network analyses.
