Abroad: London, England – Fall 2018

Claire O'Brien studies the political economy in India, examining the consequences of administrative decentralization.  The key question is whether devolving control to local governments improves health and education outcomes.

Through the Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty, O’Brien completed an internship at Asylee Women Enterprise, a nonprofit that works with people seeking political asylum in Baltimore, MD.
