dc.description.abstractThis summer, I had the privilege of representing my country, Pakistan, as a Junior Adviser at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City under the supervision of Deputy Permanent Representative Nabeel Munir and Ms. Saima Syed. As a government organization, the Permanent Mission of Pakistan to the United Nations in accordance with the UN Charter, actively works with the international community to promote and maintain international peace and security, both as a member of the Security Council and through its contribution to UN Peacekeeping. During my internship, I participated in discussions and negotiations at the United Nations on a host of issues including human rights, peace building, anti-terrorism, development, climate change, and international law. My internship provided a unique insight to my International Relations major as I understood the motivations and interests that guide every state in global policy.

dc.description.panabstractIn an increasingly globalized world, international affairs affect all of us in one way or another and shape the environment in which we live. This past summer, each of us worked for international NGOs and nonprofit organizations, working on a myriad of projects concerning different parts of the world. Our experiences include researching the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, working with the United Nations, researching Iran’s foreign policies, and working in the international development sector by providing support for elections in new and emerging democracies. Our panel will capture the range of experiences we went through as we tried to better the world from New York City and Washington D.C. Collectively, we gained valuable research experience as well as insights into the inner workings of international organizations and the realities of the world in which we live.
