Peace Studies & Political Science
Joséphine Lechartre (peace studies and political science) received her B.A. and M.A. Cum Laude from the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po Paris) in 2018. Throughout the course of her studies, she spent one year at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP) in Brazil.
While pursuing her M.A., she worked as an intern at the Advocacy Department of the Colombian Commission of Jurists in Bogotá, an NGO attending the victims of the Colombian armed conflict.
Joséphine’s research agenda explores the legacies of violent conflict on social movement formation. In previous work, she investigated the politics surrounding the implementation of transitional justice in Colombia. Her doctoral dissertation investigates the formation of indigenous social movements in post-conflict Guatemala.
Joséphine is a Richard and Peggy Notebaert Fellow; and was previously awarded the 2018-19 Darby Fellowship.
