Student Profile

Maya Nir

BA Candidate, Political and Social Thought


I am majoring in Political and Social Thought, with a minor in Global Sustainability and Middle Eastern & South Asian Languages & Cultures. I study Arabic and French. My research interests include conflict resolution, transitional justice and conceptions of international law in the MENA region. I hope to explore intersections of state violence, migration, environmental degradation and indigenous substate actors. Fun fact: I work on a goat farm and gave a newborn goat CPR!
