I am a recent graduate of NPSIA’s M.A. in International Affairs at Carleton University. Although I specialized in Conflict Analysis and Conflict Resolution, I am also interested in foreign policy, human rights and international development. This blog represents a collection of my musings on these and related subjects, and … heavy metal music.
“Don’t let us forget that the causes of human actions are usually immeasurably more complex and varied than our subsequent explanations of them.” – Fyodor Dostoevsky in The Idiot
“Nevertheless the passions, whether violent or not, should never be so expressed as to reach the point of causing disgust; and music, even in situations of the greatest horror, should never be painful to the ear but should flatter and charm it, and thereby always remain music.” – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
