The department is a lively community that is recognised internationally as one of the top centres for research and teaching in development studies.
I am from Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and was able to attend the University of Oxford thanks to a Weidenfeld Scholarship I received upon admission to the university. I completed the Global Governance and Diplomacy program, which provided everything I looked for in a graduate programme: strong theoretical grounding, practical tools in qualitative and quantitative research and analysis, and an array of elective courses, from which I was able to choose those that fit my interests the most.
I am now a Research Analyst at the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, a human rights organisation, which seeks to prevent and halt mass atrocity crimes - genocide, ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity and war crimes - by spurring governments, civil society, and international and regional organisations to effectively implement the principle of Responsibility to Protect. I am thrilled to be able to meaningfully apply all that I learned at Oxford to my current work.
