Carlos Andrés Paredes Ph. D. Candidate
I am thrilled to be part of the Global Studies Department at St. Lawrence University!
Most of my academic training is in international relations and politics, focusing on peace and conflict studies. My research interests include Human Rights, international organizations, social movements and regionalism.
I have had the opportunity to teach in diverse settings: college students in large classes in public universities and in small classes in private institutions. I have also been honoured to teach Officers at the Ecuadorian Military Academy.
Outside of academia, I have been an avid Model UN participant, which gave me the opportunity to get involved with the United Nations Department of Public Information to help organize the 2011 Global MUN Conference in Incheon, South Korea. I have also worked at human rights oriented nongovernmental organizations, and national institutions such as the Ecuadorian Agency for International Cooperation, Ministry of Economic Policy, and Ecuadorian Permanent Mission to the UN.
At the same time, I have developed a variety of interests: I enjoy being on stage, learning languages, and practicing all kinds of sports (from yoga, to volleyball, to martial arts). I look forward to engaging in dialogue and learning from one another through class sessions and at events within the broader St. Lawrence community.
