Micaela Klein is a senior at Dartmouth College majoring in Government with a minor in Arabic.

She has spent her undergraduate career exploring issues related to violence and security, and is specifically interested in the regional politics of the Middle East and North Africa. Over the past year, she has conducted research on terrorist group longevity for her senior honors thesis in the Government Department with her advisor, Professor Benjamin Valentino. Her research examines when and how terrorist groups come to an end with a special emphasis on groups that transition from terrorism to politics.

At Dartmouth she is the Director and co-Founder of the First Year Scholarship Enrichment Program (FYSEP), a War and Peace Fellow with the Dickey Center for International Understanding, an intern at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, and a member of both the College’s Advisory Council on Investor Responsibility (ACIR) and the Committee on Student Life (COSL). She also served as the Inter-Community Council intern for two years with the Office for Pluralism and Leadership (OPAL).

Off campus, Micaela studied Arabic in Fez, Morocco, interned with the International Trade Administration at the US Embassy in Lima, Peru, interned in Washington DC with the US Committee for the United Nations Development Program (UNDP-USA), and interned with KLD Research and Analytics in Boston, MA. When she graduates, Micaela plans to work for the US Government in some capacity before eventually pursuing a Masters in International Affairs.
