Born and raised in Athens, Greece, Ioannis (Yannis) Chatziiosif recently received his BA in International and European Studies. He is currently attending a postgraduate program in Human Rights at the University of Glasgow. His research interests have been largely oriented towards gender relations and the domain of power relations within society. One of his ambitions growing up was to travel around the world. So far, he has lived in several European countries in his attempt to gain professional experience and familiarize himself with new cultures. His interest in politics led him to accept two internship positions within the diplomatic bodies of Greece and Belgium. For now, he wishes to focus on the Human Rights realm. The Humanity in Action Fellowship will be a great opportunity for Yannis to develop his ideas on social justice as a separate aspect of the discourse on Civil and Political Rights.
