Graduate Research Award: Andrew Clark

Andrew Clark

SIS/MA '11, International Peace and Conflict Resolution

 

While many of the students in the IPCR program are passionate about lessening disagreements between religions, Clark has a personal reason: he converted to Islam while living in Egypt, and "returned to the U.S. with a desire to bring about greater understanding between religions, as well as within the Muslim community," he explains.

Clark attended the Pathways for Mutual Respect's conference in New Haven, Connecticut in June 2010, which complemented his research interests of the Middle East peace process and religion's effects upon the political environment there.
