The MIIS Experience in 60 Seconds
April 9, 2014
Chris Puder is a graduate student at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, pursuing a degree in International Policy Studies, in the track of Human Securities and Development, with a career focus in Armed Violence and Development.
In this snapshot of his experience at MIIS, he talks about going to the United Nations for a week to sit in on general session meetings and observe the process of developing an international treaty. In the future, he'd like to be a country director of a major development organization, and says: "If any place can give you the skills to do that, it would be the Monterey Institute."
