Cory and Craig Belden (MAIPS '10) interned at Action Africa Help International, an organization promoting development and peace-building projects in Southern Sudan. They also worked with the American Refugee Committee (ARC) to conduct research on gender-based violence in the Boma region. They spent the summer interviewing community members, convening focus groups, and distributing surveys.
Cory and Craig kept an online portfolio about their experiences living and working in an impoverished, post-conflict society. Their research projects focus on development and governance issues in Southern Sudan. Read Cory's personal reflections or Craig's accounts of their days in the field.
