Oxford Q-Step Centre

Tuuli-Anna Huikuri

Coming from a remote village north of the Arctic Circle in Finland, one might wonder why on earth would I be interested in international relations. I however wanted to study international relations from very early on, and finished a BA in International Politics at King's College London. I have since studied at Hong Kong University, volunteered at the refugee camps at the Thai-Burma border, and worked at the International Security Department at Chatham House. I got introduced to statics at an undergraduate course, and though a Q-Step scholarship to the Essex Statistics Summer School - which at first seemed like a lot of maths! But I found that although sometimes challenging because of the kinds of phenomena studied in international relations, statistics can give an innovative student powerful analytical leverage. I am currently doing a DPhil in International Relations at Nuffield College, researching global governance in the international investment regime.
