From BSOS Alum Luciana Debenedetti '11: 
"Humanity in Action affirmed my interest in studying and promoting human rights, and equipped me with a framework and contextual basis for doing so. The opportunity to spend one month in a new city with European and American students of diverse backgrounds and viewpoints was an unparalleled experience that allowed me to debate and explore contemporary political challenges inside and outside of the classroom. After the fellowship, I benefitted from a close-knit network of former fellows and events for continued engagement. I recommend the fellowship for intellectually curious students who are passionate about active citizenship." 

Luciana invites any interested students to contact her with questions:
