I am a 22-year-old Estonian, with a Bachelor’s in Law from University of Tartu and currently studying Masters of IRIO in RUG. During my law studies, I developed an interest in human rights, more specifically child rights. I’m happy to be a part of the IRSP and TdH project to put my knowledge into practice.
I’m Meike, 21 years old, and born and raised in Groningen. I just finished my bachelor IRIO and I am really excited to gain some practical experience through our research for Terre des Hommes. My main interests are human rights and sustainable development, which is why I want to continue my studies with a master in development studies next year.
I am Daphne, 21 years old and I am a fourth year student IRIO. I am currently doing an internship at a local government organization. I just came back from Madrid where I have been living for 5 months, where I studied among others gender anthropology and human rights. My interests are women’s rights and international organized crimes, especially human trafficking. Other interests of mine are soccer and movies.
Giulia de Vita
I am Giulia, 22 years old and from Italy. I am currently studying for the Master IRIO, after finishing my undergraduate in Social Policy and Economics at the University of Edinburgh. My interests include children’s rights and conflict studies, and I focus in particular on Africa and the Middle East. The project with Terre des Hommes is a great opportunity to gain practical research experience and get an insight in the work of an NGO.
Your coordinator from the IRSP Board is Antonia Trede. She is an IRIO Bachelor student and especially interested in environment, sustainability and development studies as well as corporate social responsibility.
I am a third year IRIO student from Germany. International relations fascinates me because I get to study the interplay of various actors in an always changing environment. For me, the IRSP is a great way to gain hands on research experience on a topic, which has always interested me, and will eventually have a great impact on our futures.
As a Master student in International Relations and International Political Economy I am dedicating myself to all energy related topics, such as energy security, the impact of climate change and the significance of energy supply and interdependence to the functioning of democracies. IRSP and ECN are offering me the opportunity to research in a field which we are being confronted with on a daily basis.
Karlien de Boer
Since 2013 I have been studying International Relations in Groningen because I am interested in understanding the rapidly changing world around us. Since my traineeship in Brussels, I have been specifically interested in European energy policy such as the Emissions Trading System. The IRSP project offers me a great opportunity to bring these interests into practice and to gain hands on research experience.
This is my fourth most likely last year into the the IRIO bachelor. Over the past years I have enjoyed the broad and interdisciplinary character of this study. Nevertheless recently I have found myself interested in environmental politics which today is in many ways closely related to energy policy and politics. Being part of the IRSP research team for ECN gives me the opportunity to further develop and deepen my interest and knowledge in a policy field that still has a long way to go.
During the past two years I have directed my studies more and more to learning more about the politics surrounding energy and the environment. Now that my bachelor’s degree is coming to an end, it has become clear to me that that is the direction I want to make my future studies in. The ECN project of IRSP has as such been a great opportunity to immerse myself in this interesting field and gain some real experience!
