Catharina Brunner Lopez is a sophomore from Austria and Spain majoring in business analytics and global affairs. She is interested in the long-term effects of the ongoing global refugee crisis on European government and politics, particularly in view of the rise of nationalism and right-wing governments across Europe. Catharina is assisting Professor Ilaria Schnyder von Wartensee with the Humanitarian Corridor Initiative, which brings to light the authentic experiences of refugees seeking asylum in Italy. The project aims to evaluate the integration of the refugees from various countries from Africa into the Italian society over a five year period, focusing on the role of religion, faith, and dignity.
