Master of Arts in Humanitarian Assistance students present capstone projects

On May 7, 2015, two students of the Master of Arts in Humanitarian Assistance (MAHA) program presented their capstone projects. Lulwa al-Khilani presented a thesis titled “Displaced and Stateless: Palestinian Refugees Fleeing the Syrian Crisis” and Omar Sawan presented his thesis on “Examining the Political Nature of the Humanitarian Space Inside the Syrian Arab Republic.” An audience of FIC faculty, researchers, staff, and students at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and The Friedman School on Nutrition Science and Policy attended the event.

Capstone projects are a graduation requirement for the MAHA program and they enable students to pursue an in-depth research project under the guidance of Professor Dan Maxwell (Director of the MAHA Program), Phoebe Randel (MAHA Program Coordinator), and select faculty.
