Mark Koenig

Mark Koenig (Collective Campaign for Peace – COCAP): Mark was born in St. Louis, Missouri. After graduating from the International School of Bern in Switzerland in 2000, he spent one year at Davidson College in North Carolina and then moved on to Johns Hopkins University where he received a bachelor's degree with honors in Political Science in 2004. While studying at Johns Hopkins, Mark completed internships with genomics researcher Craig Venter, US House Representative Chris Van Hollen, and in London with Lady Sylvia Hermon, a Member of Parliament from Northern Ireland. After graduation, Mark moved to Shenzhen, China where he lived for two years teaching English at Shenzhen Senior High School. At the time of his fellowship, Mark was studying at Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in Boston focusing on post-conflict reconstruction, law and development. After his fellowship, Mark wrote: “I think that perhaps it is my interest in and understanding of community level dynamics and activities that has developed the most while here. The significance of community level interactions and relationships as it pertains to the events that take place on a national level is an intriguing topic that this summer has given me new insight into.”

This is a short video of interviews I took with various COCAP volunteers. It was a pleasure to work with COCAP this summer and I was truly inspired by their passion and vision for Nepal. Anyone who is interested in learning more about the struggle for peace and human rights in Nepal should learn more about COCAP and its work. http://www.cocap.org.np

    Wow! Awesome, Mark! This is the kind of thing that we should encourage all Fellows to do! It really allows your audience to connect human faces to the issues. Good stuff… I’m glad you took the time to do this even when you’re so busy with school!

    Thank you Kristina and Amy, I was happy to put this together. I had planned on doing more interviews with so many more of the amazing COCAP personalities, bu the camera I was using did not last the whole Summer. i am glad you enjoyed it though, and I hope it leads a couple more people to look into COCAP.
