Charlotte Kamin '18 interned with the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) for the Summer 2017 term. The following is an excerpt from her internship report.

This summer, I served as an Iraq research analyst intern with the Institute for the Study of War (ISW). ISW is a non-partisan think tank in Washington D.C. that researches and analyzes the political and security conditions abroad to better inform the American public and to influence U.S. strategy and policy in critical regions. ISW conducts rigorous open-source research in order to provide accurate and timely intelligence on developing military operations, enemy threats, and socio-political realities in key regions like the Middle East and Central Asia.

Notes from the Field: Faith Rotich ’18

Faith Rotich interned at the World Justice Project during the 2016 Summer Term. The following is a brief recap of her experience in her own words.

I think my internship at the World Justice Project this past summer was an excellent opportunity not only for my professional advancement, but also for my personal growth.  My role was centered around establishing the relationship between the rule of law and socio-economic development around the world. As a student interested in a career in economic development, I learned about the different ways in which lack of, or limited access to the rule of law impedes the improvement of standards of living and economic development in general.
