Marshall Casebeer ’22 gains international experience through a remote internship

Marshall Casebeer ’22 didn’t spend a lot of time thinking about the rights of North African women or anti-corruption efforts taking place in the Middle East—but he does now. As an intern with the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations, Casebeer works with Reconnaissance Research, a think tank dedicated to building ties between the United States and Kuwait to tackle issues like authoritarianism and refugee crises in the Persian Gulf. Through the program, he's getting to conduct research with far-reaching implications for the region.

“I’m hoping to broaden and deepen my understanding of the Middle East and North Africa region, build relationships with a variety of professionals and academics in the field, and gain professional experience within the research and advocacy communities of which the National Council and Reconnaissance Research are a part,” Casebeer says.
