I received a quick note this week from Marlene Houngbedji, who made an appearance on the blog earlier this year. She told me that she was just about to climb on a plane to Ireland to attend a conference at the National University of Ireland-Galway. Not just attend the conference, but present a paper she wrote for Prof. Mazurana’s class, which earned her an invitation to participate. Marlene is listed among the Parallel Session Speakers in the conference agenda, where you can also find the abstract of her talk.
Marlene completed the one-year LLM program in May, and she is currently working as a summer legal researcher for the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative-Harvard Humanitarian Academy. She will start a permanent position in the Refugee, Asylum, and International Operations Division of the Department of Homeland Security later this summer.
