Lev Zinchenko

M.A. in Political Science, Université Libre De Bruxelles, Belgium

Period of internship: Sep 16 - Dec 16, 2022

This fall, I had a fantastic opportunity to complete an internship, within the framework of my studies, with the CSD Law and Economic programs. I have assisted both programs on a diverse range of topics from civil confiscation and human rights to disinformation and anti-corruption. I was delighted that my knowledge and experience could be applied towards the projects that bring a meaningful impact on policy making.

While, as a Ukrainian, I continue to go through rough times, the CSD team was supportive of me. Both of my supervisors, Maria Stoyanova and Kristina Tsabala, offered me their assistance and guidance, as well as the other members of CSD that I had an opportunity to work with. I wish that my internship could last longer in order to participate and experience a wider range of the impact made by the CSD in Bulgaria and EU-wide.
