About Me

Alexis Kallen graduated in the Class of 2018 with a B.A. in Political Science, with minors in Spanish and Human Rights. She was particularly interested in violations of women’s rights in times of war, which led her to her Senior Honor’s thesis with the Center for Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law, “Silenced Survivors: Analyzing Evidence of Genocidal Rape in the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR)”. In this thesis, she examined the reasoning behind the lack of genocidal rape findings in the ICTR. While at Stanford, she also served as chair of Stanford in Government (SIG), Stanford’s largest student group, where she focused conversation on international policy. Alexis was also a Student Assistant for the WSD Handa Center. During her summers, she interned for her congresswoman in Washington DC, conducted independent research in Rwanda on genocidal rape, and interned with the Justice Centre Hong Kong, a nonprofit law firm focused on refugees in Hong Kong. She is a 2017 Truman Scholar and a 2018 Rhodes Scholar, where she is studying for the MPhil in Development Studies at the University of Oxford.
