The APCSS Regional Security Studies Internship Program brings to the Center graduate and undergraduate students from around the world to assist and participate in APCSS courses.

Amanda Lamothe-Cadet served as a Regional Security Studies Intern in the summer of 2014 and recently completed a paper entitled “A Relationship of Convenience: The Russo-Chinese Strategic Partnership” as part of our Alumni Perspectives program.   In this paper she discusses how Russia and China have developed a rather unique strategic partnership, largely predicated upon deepening their economic ties and criticizing the West, as well as underlying issues that may complicate this relationship.

Currently, Lamothe-Cadet is a senior at Dartmouth College double majoring in Asian & Middle Eastern Studies focusing on Chinese Studies and Government focusing on International Relations.  At Dartmouth, she is a Student Program Assistant for the Global Leadership Program at the Nelson A Rockefeller Center for Public Policy.  After graduating she intends on enrolling in a joint JD and PhD program to pursue a career in international law.
