David Wong ’19 Named a Gaither Junior Fellow

David Wong ’19, a government major from West Chester, Penn., has been named a James C. Gaither Junior Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace—one of 11 recent graduates nominated from participating colleges and universities to conduct policy research alongside Carnegie’s senior scholars in Washington, D.C.

“I’m honored to be chosen, and I’m looking forward to being exposed to the thoughts of some of the leading thinkers and theorists on these issues,” says Wong, who will be working on issues related to democracy, conflict, and governance. “I think this will be a great way for me to better understand what approaches and techniques will best promote and protect democracy.”

He developed his interest in democracy at Dartmouth, he says, in courses on ethnic conflict, populism in Europe, and economic development in Latin America.
