I applied to the Kovler Project to participate and be present for the direct dialogue between states and the UNCAT Committee furthering human rights and compliance with the Convention Against Torture.  I look forward to strategizing with my colleagues ways to ensure compliance. 

As a student interested in working internationally, and in particular on accountability issues relating to crimes against humanity and war crimes, I look forward to making new contacts in Geneva with others interested in human rights and accountability issues.  After law school I hope to practice international humanitarian law either domestically or abroad. 

Kate's Human rights Quote:

“It means a great deal to those who are oppressed to know that they are not alone. Never let anyone tell you that what you are doing is insignificant.”

Desmond Tutu
