Georgia graduated from the University of Oxford with a Bachelors degree in History and has since completed a Graduate Diploma in Law. She is currently attaining a Masters degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics. Her main focus is on Human Rights, conflict resolution and peace-building initiatives. She has written a paper on the gendered nature of the Human Rights regime with a particular focus on how the Human Rights regime fails women. Another paper analysed the alternatives to liberal peace in post-conflict peace-building.
Georgia’s interests also lie in the Middle East as she has written a piece for the London Globalist online international affairs magazine on the matter of UK weapons sales to Saudi Arabia and the Yemen Civil War. She has been invited to attend various All Party Parliamentary Groups in the UK Houses of Parliament, alongside MPs, academics, diplomats and experts discussing the Yemen crisis.
Georgia was also recently invited to NATO HQ in Brussels as part of the Atlantic Council UK delegation to discuss the recent reinvigoration of Russian tensions with the West. As a result, a further area of interest is how Cyberspace has become a domain of operations in which international affairs play out. In particular, she is interested in how cyber defence initiatives must be refocused to address the actuality of foreign interference in domestic affairs via the global forum that is the internet.
