The Global Justice Academy runs a Student Ambassador programme within the University of Edinburgh, where current undergraduates and postgraduates can get involved with our work. Here, Connor Hounslow introduces himself as our first Student Ambassador for 2017-18. Connor will be reporting from upcoming events as well as penning opinion pieces for this blog. Stay tuned!
My name is Connor Hounslow andI hail from Westborough, Massachusetts. I am third-year MA (Hons) International Relations with Quantitative Methods Student at the University. My aligned interests with the Global Justice Academy include political theory, international law, as well as the use of quantitative methods in the social sciences.
My internship this past summer with the Fund For Peace provided the opportunity to explore the various issues around conflict and economic development. Due to this, and alongside my current studies in the Global Justice and Citizenship course, my intellectual interests have gravitated towards the normative questions of global justice that exist. Outside of these studies, I am the research director for the Buchanan Institute and I am a research member for the HYPED Regulatory team.
