MSc IPPD Student on Work Placement with Standards in Public Office, Dublin
A student of the MSc International Public Policy and Diplomacy Programme, Michaela Reilly, has recently accomplished her Work Placement with Standards in Public Office in Dublin.
"As part of the Europe Day 2019 celebrations, I was invited to present a short paper to the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade and Defence on the challenges to the Common Security and Defence Policy of the EU. My research focused on the broader obstacles that Brexit poses for the EU in advancing the CDSP once they leave the Union, in addition to the knock-on effects that Ireland is likely to experience. This was a great opportunity to put the skills that I have acquired from studying on the MSc IPPD programme to good use while engaging with cross-party policy makers and academics from across Ireland."
