IMG_3632Hi I’m Meghan (Megs for short)! I’m a recent Public Policy graduate from the University of Michigan, currently using my writing and editing skills working in International Trade Law in Washington, DC. My focus is in Foreign Policy and Communications, specifically Democratization, with geographical emphases in Europe, and Latin America. With previous think tank, journalism, and abroad experience, my professional goals include pursuing a career in International Relations, Journalism, and or Political Communications.

For instance, I currently format, fact check, and edit legal arguments for antidumping and countervailing cases with federal agencies, leading up to rulings deciding international tariffs and sanctions. In my free time, I contribute to The Foreign Policy Association‘s blog, publishing op-ed and informative pieces on current foreign events.

Just last year, I served as the Managing Editor for The Michigan Journal of International Affairs (MJIA), Michigan’s premier op-ed foreign affairs publication.

Last summer, I studied abroad in Santiago, Chile where I completed my Spanish studies and examined post-war democratization following the Pinochet regime.

Before that, I was working in Brussels, Belgium coordinating student discussions on European Integration with EU institutions, NGOs, and IGOS.

Finally in 2016, I acted as a Communications Intern with the Atlantic Council, a D.C. based foreign policy think tank, where I contributed to their blog, the New Atlanticist, as well as covered in-house events.

If you want to get in touch, I can be reached via email (merowley@umich.edu) or Twitter (@megs_rowley) to talk all things international.
