AGS Summer Fellows Program:
"On process, I learned about the differences between NGOs and think tanks in shaping policy. While think tanks evaluate policies and make nuanced recommendations to Congress and the Executive Branch, advocacy organizations such as LAWG are concerned with rapid response to human rights violations."
"This summer, I interned as a research analyst at Valens Global, a national security consulting firm founded in 2014 that focuses on the threats posed by violent non-state actors (VNSAs)."
"I worked with Ian Wallace, director of the Cybersecurity Initiative and a former senior cyber official with the British Ministry of Defence, on research about so-called next-generation cyber strategies—studying how liberal-democratic nation-states are modifying their Internet (and internet) protocols and policies to balance network openness with network security and a responsibility for citizen 'harm reduction.'"
"While I have received incomparable advice and direction to help guide me in my Defense and Operations Research Program II major, my internship in DC has taught me more than just what classes to take and where to search for a job."
"My favorite task this summer was meeting with human rights groups in Zagreb. I met with three total (Human Right's House, Documenta, and the Serb National Council (SNC) to discuss their current projects and annual reports."
"The first of my summer experiences, a ten-week internship with The Feminist Majority’s Foundation on their Afghanistan Project, allowed me to directly synthesis my personal passions for women’s empowerment within the field of national security."
