SDGs: Peace Justice and Strong Institutions
Being able to meet and have a conversation with influential leaders was the highlight of my time at the YA.Tihut Getabicha
Tihut Getabicha is an international student from Ethiopia pursuing her B.A. in Connecticut College. She is an international relation and Economics double major. She is specifically interested in Middle Eastern and U.S. foreign relations/ politics. Tihut is currently proposing a project for a center in Connecticut college. The plan is to target SDG 16: Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions. The project will mainly focus on the progress made by Middle Eastern and North African countries in the process of achieving SDG 16 post the Arab Spring. It will look at how the UN deploys peacekeepers in the MENA region and their role in ensuring peace in the region. With the help of faculty and professors, she is narrowing down the countries to be studied under the project.
