Elizabeth Cook

This research assistant position was brought to my attention by an email from the criminology department. Having previously studied Human Rights violations at University, I was interested in the idea of an existing bias in current research.

Tia Martin

This internship was brought to my attention through an email sent to the geography department by one of the lecturers. By reading through the email and doing some research this engaged my interest in the internship. The opportunity was aimed at addressing rightlessness, oppression, and exploitation of migrant workers in the South Asia – Middle East migration corridor.
