Sulamita Romanchik completed her B.A. degree at King’s University College at Western University. She graduated with an Honours Specialization in Political Science and Major in French Language and Literature. In addition, she holds a Global and Intercultural Engagement Honor for her various experiences within, and outside of, Canada.
In the final years of her undergraduate studies Sulamita participated in a couple of research trips abroad. The first research trip was to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where she focused on the issue of UN peacekeeping missions and why many of such missions have been unsuccessful. This research project entailed a comparison with the African Union’s peace support operations to understand how to move forward in pursuing peace and security on the African continent. The second research trip was to Europe (Paris, Brussels, Geneva) to study the issue of labour and migration and what sort of regulations and myths exist that prevent states from adopting open-border policies.
Sulamita also has professional experience in policy analysis. She recently worked as a Policy Analyst for the City of London, where she analyzed policies primarily from the Civic Works Committee board, and helped organize and facilitate a Women’s Political Summit.
Sulamita’s current research interests are in Climate Change/Sustainable Environmental Development, as well as African Governance.
