Paige Martin is a student at the Balsillie School of International Affairs in the Masters of Arts in Global Governance Program. She recently graduated from the University of Calgary with Distinction in Political Science and a minor in Security Studies. Throughout her undergraduate degree, Paige had the opportunity to study in a variety of disciplines including political science, history, anthropology, sociology, geography, and development studies.
In 2018, through the University of Calgary and The Washington Centre, Paige had the opportunity to intern with the Permanent Mission of Canada to the Organization of American States, in Washington, DC. She got to attend a variety of meetings where member states discussed hemispheric security, human rights, strengthening democracy, electoral cooperation, and much more. Here, she was able to realize her passion for diplomacy and global governance and issues such as peace, conflict, security, and human rights.
During her time at the BSIA, Paige hopes to dive deeper into how we can address complex and pressing issues through the current constraints of existing global governance institutions. She is excited to gain further hands-on experience through the internship portion of the program.
