Abroad: Dublin, Ireland – Fall 2018

Caitlin Crahan works under Professor Ernesto Verdeja, supporting the work of the Institute for the Study of Genocide and Professor Verdeja’s own studies. She spent her sophomore year conducting research on genocide and mass atrocities, with a focus on prevention and triggers, and will continue this work during her junior year and semester abroad at Trinity College in Dublin. 

During the summer of 2018, Crahan interned at The Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia. She worked in the Conflict Resolution Program to promote peace in Syria and Israel-Palestine. Crahan’s internship was sponsored by the Center for Career Development at Notre Dame.
