We are pleased to announce that the 2015-2016 Manatt Fellowship has been awarded to two M.A. students in the Elliott School, both of whom have demonstrated longstanding commitment to global gender issues and gender equality through their academic record, internships, and research.
The Guardian referenced the GGP/IGIS publication "Women in Peace and Security through United Nations Security Resolution 1325" (.pdf) in this article on the impact of the Resolution 15 years after its passage.
Mikaela is an M.A. candidate of International Affairs at the Elliott School of International Affairs. In this capacity, she explores topics of international development and global gender equality.
The Global Gender Program (GGP) comprises Elliott School faculty, staff, students, alumni, and affiliated professionals who are dedicated to improving the health, education, rights and security (HERS) of women and girls internationally and to reducing gender-based exclusion, violence, and discrimination in these four areas. Founded in 2010, GGP pursues its mission through teaching, research, and policy/public engagement.
Everything the Global Gender Program does is based on the premise that Gender Equality Matters.
