Joseph W. Alliance

I am Joseph Alliance. I hold a Bachelor degree in Political Science and a master's degree in Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution from the SIT (School for International Training) Graduate Institute in Vermont.

I have collaborated briefly with the Dominican Council on International Relations (CDRI) at the Fundacion Global Democracia y Desarrollo in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic in 2013. Between 2014-2017, I was also involved in international mediation in a case that opposed farming communities in Haiti against the Inter-american Development Bank (IDB) and the Haitian government.

My interests are: conflict resolution, political advocacy, mediation, sustainable development, international relations, human rights.
