Livia PoliseLivia Polise ('22)
Hi, I'm Livia and I'm a junior concentrating in International and Public Affairs on the Development track. I am particularly interested in the study of inequality. The interdisciplinary nature of IAPA has allowed me to explore and understand various forms and structures of inequality, including immigrant racialization, the formation of labor hierarchies, and inequalities of climate change. As an IAPA DUG leader, I'm excited about creating a community for IAPA students to learn, grow, and further their academic and career goals. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about studying IAPA at Brown!
