We interviewed Armida van Rij a Masters student in the Institute of Middle Eastern Studies and staff member in the King’s Policy Institute who took part in the Student Opportunity Fund. She talks about her invaluable experience, after being awarded Student Opportunity Funding (SOF) to travel with other King’s students to Northern Ireland to get first hand experience of conflict resolution. This involved speaking to people that were involved in the conflict prior to the Belfast Agreement and touring places of interest around the city that were linked to the conflict.
