Callum Kaye

Master's degree in International Security, University of Groningen

Period of internship: Sep 02 - Dec 20, 2019

I spent 4 months as an intern at the CSD's Economic Program. During my internship, I had the opportunity to gain unique insights into how Russia uses media to malignly influence countries across Europe. I was also lucky enough to participate as a note taker for meetings that included participants such as the International Monetary Fund and the US Department of State. One of the best experiences I had was taking notes for the Russian Influence in Europe: Countering State Capture Risks event. Among the participants were the diplomatic missions in Bulgaria of countries such as Great Britain, Ireland, and Germany, in addition to the former president, Rosen Plevneliev.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the CSD, and hope that the experience I have gained is useful in obtaining employment in the future.
