The Centre for Global Research internship was a highly enriching experience for Stefani Vasil.
"The research internship undertaken at the Centre in 2013 was a highly enriching experience. With significant emphasis placed on the intern’s learning process, the internship gave me the opportunity to work with a group of highly skilled researchers who encouraged me to challenge my analytical skill base. The principal component of the internship was the development of an empirical case study on the issue of Presidential Pardoning in Timor-Leste.
"This undertaking motivated my decision to pursue an honours thesis, which will centre on the wider issue of transitional justice in post conflict states. Whilst the internship experience has enabled me to develop a deep interest in such issues of justice, it has also provided me with the opportunity to put learned skills into practice.
"As a result I will be travelling to Timor-Leste mid-year in what will be a life-changing experience. No doubt this trip will deepen my learning and broaden my perspective."
