On the heals of Marius Palz who spent Summer 2011 as an OICD intern, Aliya Tskhay joins the OICD volunteer workforce from just across Doshisha’s University Kyoto campus. Aliya is completing her master’s degree at the Graduate School of Global Studies and her research subject is the development of nuclear energy in Kazakhstan.

Aliya has already proven her skills in conceiving and actively participating in innovative conferences such as the 2011 Global Studies Humanitarian Intervention conference. Aliya is helping with a variety of OICD work, including document preparation, research, training curriculum development and conference organization. She is also contributing to OICD facebook content  and coming up with innovative ideas for a range of OICD initiatives and partnerships.

The OICD warmly welcomes Aliya on-board!
