Middle Eastern Studies Graduate Hired by U.S. Institute of Peace
Posted: August 26, 2009
Anne Womer, summer graduate of the Middle Eastern Studies/Public Affairs dual degree, has been hired by the U.S. Institute of Peace, where she is busy learning the nuts and bolts of government-funded peace programs. Most of her work deals with the rule of law in Iraq, and she helps administer projects on judicial independence, constitutional review, and the property rights of returning refugees. She uses her advanced knowledge of Arabic to translate documents from partner organizations in Iraq, and she will be traveling to Iraq next year to participate in a conference on governmental powers.
