  • MA Graduate Spotlight

    As an MA student at Loyola University Chicago, Nahrain S. Rasho became excited about political science research and motivated to pursue a Ph.D. in political science. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the department of political science at the University of California, Davis, and a 2020-2021 Peace Scholar Fellow at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP). She studies nationalism, ethnic conflict, and state-building strategies in post-conflict settings. Her research explores how policy solutions to ethnic conflict increase conflict between ethnic groups in local societies.
