George Foden

As part of his undergraduate degree in Psychology with American Studies, George spent a year studying in Chicago where he worked in association with several community outreach programmes designed to tackle gang violence. In particular, his work with BOUT IT, an organization that provides mentors for young ex-gang members, led to an interest in conflict prevention strategies and post-conflict reconstruction with a focus on the rehabilitation of people affected by violence. George completed his MA in Conflict, Security and Development at the University of Sussex in the summer of 2017 and maintains an interest in the ways in which identity politics influences intergroup behavior and can act as a contributing factor to both violence and its resolution.
