MacKenzie Van Meter


I am a second semester International Trade and Economic Diplomacy student based in Paris, France where I work as an English Teaching Assistant. Before coming to MIIS, I graduated with a degree in Philosophy and French from Washington and Lee University.

Areas of interest

I am passionate about philosophy, Francophone studies, and economics. I love learning, exploring the world, the arts, and most things active.

Project description

Building on my background in philosophy, my conflict transformation project seeks to provide an ontological analysis of conflict that helps us to better understand what motivates conflict, how we interact with it, and finally, how we can transform it.
