Peace Studies & Political Science
Patrick McQuestion (peace studies and political science) holds a Master’s in Development Management and Policy from Georgetown University, in combination with Universidad Nacional de San Martín, Argentina. His Master’s thesis on anti-corruption advocacy in Argentina studies the case of a national NGO’s efforts to leverage public-facing transparency pacts across three municipal governments.
Prior to this, he worked as a research associate for the Kroc Institute’s Peace Accords Matrix, contributing research and data management in compliance with their official mandate to provide real-time monitoring of the 2016 Colombian Peace Agreement. His published work includes policy briefs and reports related to Colombia, peace accords, and public policy. While living in Argentina, he also worked for the Argentine Ministry of Modernization in a program mapping public sector payrolls within the Foreign Ministry, Hospitals, and Statistics Institute, among other areas. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in English from Reed College. Patrick will concentrate his studies on comparative politics and methods.
