Nuno Pereira

I am a Jack Kent Cooke International Award Scholar from the U.S. reading for the MPhil in Comparative Social Policy (CSP). In the U.S, I received an associate's degree in Criminal Justice from Union County College, and a bachelor's degree in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice where I researched the effects of memory in the criminal justice system. My interest in CSP comes from my background as a community organizer developing community-driven social programs and state-wide political campaigns. I plan to research the unintended consequences of policy making on communities, particularly on immigrant populations, and I hope to continue on to a DPhil.
