Emily Stanfield

Emily Standfield graduated from the University of Guelph in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. Throughout her university career, Emily developed a strong interest in international political affairs, specifically surrounding conflict and conflict resolution in Africa and the Middle East.

In Emily’s final year at Guelph, she completed an undergraduate thesis, where she studied and refined these interests. In her research paper, she explored the newfound peace between two long-time adversaries, Eritrea and Ethiopia. She examined the conflict and its resolution on a global, regional, state, and individual scale, concluding that the resolution was a combination of factors at all levels of analysis. She hopes to continue studying human security and identity conflicts with the assistance of the MAGG program.

Throughout Emily’s undergraduate program, she was involved in the political science society and volunteered as a peer contact for the political science department. As a political peer, she organized events and opportunities for other political science students to share their interests and passions.
