Work at ISIM
During her year at ISIM, junior visiting scholar Beatrix Bukus researched the topic of foreign-born school-aged children attending schools in Central Europe. To this end, she used her time at ISIM to complete an expansive database of secondary literature on her topic in preparation for her upcoming Ph.D, taking advantage of resources at Georgetown University that were unavailable to her in her native Hungary. In addition to researching and writing two scholarly articles, Beatrix also participated in numerous events at Georgetown University and throughout the DC area which were related to her research interests.
Beatrix's tenure at ISIM culminated in her receipt of ISIM's Certificate in Refugee Emergencies, which she earned by auditing ten courses taught by ISIM faculty and other Georgetown University professors.
