Me in Brief
I am a graduate student in Political Science, focusing on human rights and development. I also recently completed a law degree, specializing in international, comparative and transnational law, and I articled with a large corporate/commercial law firm in Toronto that represents large corporate clients. As such, I was able to gain substantial insight into the work of large multinational corporations. I am particularly interested in the intersection between business, human rights and development and the creation of mechanisms to encourage and promote human rights in the business world.
