Elliott School alumna, Kate Pazoles, is one of the students profiled in the Washington Post’s Express article “A Foreign Concept” on graduate students who go abroad. Kate was enrolled in our Middle East Studies program and studied abroad at the graduate level in Beirut and Damascus.
I just read an opinion piece called “Despite Facebook, Privacy is Far from Dead” by Elliott School professor, Amitai Etzioni, and thought you may be interested. Click here to read the article on CNN.com and let us know what you think.

The International Affairs Review (IAR) is a graduate student-run publication of the Elliott School of International Affairs. The IAR provides a unique forum for the policy perspectives of tomorrow’s leaders on critical issues facing the world today. IAR content also includes book reviews, interviews with policy-makers, and a spotlight on George Washington University faculty.
