Tamara White is a MA student at Arcadia University where she is pursuing a degree in International Peace and Conflict Resolution and will be graduating in December. Tamara has received her certification in Diplomacy from the American Graduate School in Paris and is currently working on her certification in mediation, which she is expected to receive November 2019. Tamara is an experienced researcher and has worked as a graduate assistant throughout her graduate career. She is currently a GA for the UN Special Rapporteur with the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention where she is assisting him with research for writing a book, summarizing international human rights cases from the current UN Session and obtaining missing documents, as well as running a human rights twitter account focusing on Cameroon. Her second GA position is with the 2019 Georg Arnold Professor on Education for Sustainable Peace, where she has assisted the professor with research and has planned a symposium on Refugee Education in the Global South, taking place at Barnard College. As a graduate student she completed her internship in Nicosia, Cyprus where she worked with a local non-profit (Home for Cooperation), helped plan the 2019 Buffer Fringe Festival, and ran their social media account. While there, she also completed a research project on the effects of planning in ethnically contested cities with a local PhD student in Nicosia. She is also currently interning with the TTCSP program at UPenn as a part of their African Think Tank Summit planning team. Tamara hopes to be able to use her research skills to allow her to continue to advocate for human rights, development, and sustainability. She hopes to one day work for a think tank domestically or abroad. Her geographic areas of interest have been East Africa, the Middle East, and South America.
