Having grown up in several countries abroad, Haris developed a passion for global political issues. During his undergraduate career, he focused on fishing-related international security crises such as the slave shrimping industry in Indonesia and piracy in the Horn of Africa. He was also a dedicated member of his university’s Model United Nations organization.
Prior to MSFS, Haris worked at the United Nations as a consultant for UN Women, as part of which he attended negotiations and wrote official reports for the General Assembly, the Commission on the Status of Women, and the Executive Board of UN Women. He also interned for a year at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, as part of which he prepared field visit manuals for important donors traveling to UNICEF missions in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and the Middle East.
"MSFS was my first choice for a master’s degree in international relations. MSFS offers unparalleled opportunities for learning from top practitioners in the field and connecting with a diverse, tight-knit network of experienced peers.”
