Holly Harris's picture

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Notre Dame where I double majored in Political Science and Spanish with a minor in Portuguese and Brazilian Studies. A combination of university coursework, study abroad experiences in Germany and Spain, and internships at both the International Rescue Committee and the U.S. Mission to the EU in Brussels, Belgium have developed my curiosity about international affairs with a focus on the European Union. My senior thesis discussed role of capital, immigration, and political influence in forming public attitudes towards support for the European Union in light of the Refugee Crisis of 2015. My research interests at Yale center around EU policymaking, particularly as it relates to migration and immigrant integration.
