Profile Information

Job Title
Executive Director
Global Justice Think Tank
What are your interests and areas of expertise in international relations?
Aid, Development, Diplomacy, Education, Ethics, Gender, Globalization, Governance, Human Rights, Justice, Migration, Poverty, Security, War
Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am a Juris Doctor (J.D.) Candidate, with an emphasis on international law and global justice, at the the University of Utah's S.J. Quinney College of Law, class of 2014, and a Master of Science in Public Administration (Sc.M.P.A.). I also have a Bachelor's of Political Science, a Bachelor's of History, and an Associates of International Relations. My primary interest in the study of law has always been a commitment to public service and global justice. It is my hope that I can progress my career in such a manner that I am able to devote the rest of my life to furthering programs and projects, whether community-centered or in international development, designed to promote public policies that advance social equity.

I was lucky to have an internship with the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center, which provided me with a mentor, real world experience and taught me the legal analysis of human rights cases on a scale larger than I had ever conceived. The IHRDC also introduced me to the founder of The MILLA Project, who has provided me with the opportunity to be an advocate for change in Libya’s transition to democracy and reinforced my commitment to women’s rights. These past and present experiences have been both inspiring and fulfilling in ways I couldn’t have hoped for, and I hope that the Global Ethics Network can assist me in furthering my goals toward global justice and social equity across the international community

The Albatross in Their Bag: The Ethical Conundrum of Condoms as Evidence

Posted on April 18, 2014 at 5:30am 0 Comments

A good south wind sprung up behind;

The albatross did follow,

And every day, for food or play,

Came to the mariners' hollo!

In mist or cloud, on mast or shroud,

It perched for vespers nine;

Whiles all the night, through fog-smoke white,

Glimmered the white moon-shine."

"God save thee, ancient mariner!

From the fiends, that plague thee…


Reconsidering International Personality: The International Response to the Growing Influence of Non-Governmental Organizations

Posted on April 30, 2013 at 3:24pm 0 Comments

The Theory of International Relations (IR) has, for the most part, been dominated by the Realists; as a result, international law formed as “the law of nations,” so that order could be carved out of the anarchy of sovereign equality. Though its origin is rooted in global anarchy, or lack of a hierarchy of authority between states that materializes as parallel claims to authority, sovereign equality has come to refer to the political process that allows all states, regardless of size,…
