Student Profiles

  • Signe Janoska-Bedi, MIPA

    Rourke O’Brien’s course on Inequality, Race and Public Policy helped me develop an understanding of the policy-making process and how it is impacted by social factors. Mark Copelovitch’s course on International Governance also helped me learn about policy-making in intergovernmental institutions.
