Alumni Stories - Where are our Alumni now?

GCSP alumni are driven leaders, prompting a worldwide change in global peace and security.

These stories are not simply accomplishments by our alumni, they reflect how GCSP alumni are transforming their communities and their workplaces around the world in the myriad of different roles they occupy. Their stories can be linked to particular projects they are working on, or their contribution to society in significant and thoughtful ways, many linked to the political situation in their country.

The Alumni Stories series was introduced early 2018.
