Charity Jenson

Charity is pursuing an MSc degree in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a major in Development Studies, concentration in Economics and a minor in Public Policy. Her undergraduate research focused on intersectoral health collaboration and political quotas for women in India, and she was published for her work on the effects of urbanization on water scarcity. Since then, she worked to train and resource community-based groups in Nepal and El Salvador, developing methods, criteria and handbooks for community development and anti-human trafficking with an initiative called Direct Good. 

 

Charity's aims for research at the Department of Social Policy and Intervention at the University of Oxford are to study the policy implications of community-based development projects and anti-human trafficking laws in India. She would like to work in the field of international relations and policy in the future, with a specific focus on child abuse, human trafficking, commercial sexual exploitation, and girls empowerment.
