Information on International Nonproliferation Organizations
Interning at the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA) at the United Nations HQ in New York City allowed me to make meaningful contributions to the ongoing efforts to facilitate the achievement of a nuclear weapon-free world. From day one, my superiors made it clear that I was considered a member of the WMD Branch (Nuclear Weapons) team. I was given substantive assignments ranging from drafting shorter policy memoranda and language for larger reports to supporting a Group of Governmental Experts in their efforts to make consensus recommendations to the General Assembly. I was also able to make time to attend some of the numerous meetings and events that related to my specific interests. In sum, the internship was an excellent opportunity to use and expand my knowledge, hone my skills, and connect with some of the world's leading experts on nonproliferation and disarmament issues.
