Mr. Yoseph Hamid is a Communications Assistant at the Partnership for Global Security supporting PGS’ strategic communications and media operations. As such, he is responsible for developing relationships with external stakeholders, coordinating and editing our newsletter, and monitoring news on nuclear security and transnational governance policies.

He is completing his B.A. in Political Science with a concentration in International Politics at the University at Buffalo. By supporting one of his professor’s research on United Nations’ peacekeeping and violence mitigation in civil war, Yoseph was inspired to pursue independent research as an Honors Scholar.

Accordingly, he explored topics ranging from international relations through the context of postcolonialism to the implications of contemporary American security policies in the Middle East. Additionally, he recently completed his Honors Thesis which examines the propensity of consociationalism to facilitate civil war in such nations.

Apart from such experiences, Yoseph served as the President of UB’s pre-law chapter of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity International and represented UB’s Political Science Department as a College of Arts and Sciences Ambassador.
