Conflict Resolution in Bosnia
September 26, 2011
Quinn VanValer Campbell is currently pursuing her MA in International Policy Studies with an emphasis on Conflict Resolution. This past summer, she interned with a Washington, D.C. group called The Advocacy Project. That organization placed her with a community organization in Bosnia called BOSFAM. In Bosnia, Quinn worked with women who survived the country's 1995 massacre in Srebrenica. She assisted with program development for a new center where the women make and sell traditional Bosnian carpets.
