International Development (2019 cohort)

My research interests centre on humanitarian relief and its impact on the lives of refugees. I hope to concentrate on the role of non-state actors in humanitarian emergencies at sea, with a specific focus on the involvement of NGOs in Search and Rescue operations in the Mediterranean. I intend to explore the challenges that are created as part of NGOs’ relations with states but also within a civil society divided by debates on migration.    

I previously studied for a BA in History at Jesus College, Oxford. I then studied for an MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies, also at the University of Oxford.
