Alumna Nicole Scartozzi ('18) has had her article “US Differing Support of Tibet and Palestine” accepted for publication in the January 2019 issue of The Journal of Political Inquiry. In it she explores the interconnection of the political ideology of constructivism and realism in explaining the differing support of disputed territories between Tibet and Palestine. She uses these two complementary theories to illustrate the US' financial and political support of Tibet due to prospective self-interest and the principle of shared identities. Nicole notes her achievement was supported by the rigorous coursework and guidance of Ambassador Harsh Bhasin. Nicole is currently pursing her MA in International Relations at New York University.
