gain from international experience," Gose says. It also
helps them "develop the intercultural skills they need to
be good citizens of the world, and also to be good lawyers."
By working in other countries, the students gain experience assisting those from different cultures and develop
cross-cultural skills and sensitivities, which they can
make use of at home or abroad, she says.
Wood worked with the Commonwealth Human Rights
Initiative in Delhi, which strives to promote human rights.
During his time there he assisted the police reform team,
where he researched and wrote about policing in India,
particularly in Delhi and Mumbai. He looked at topics
such as sexual violence against women, and he found that
because the subject "was culturally sensitive for police,
they simply wouldn't handle it," he says.
He also looked at the issue of police violence. "It was
kind of shocking. Police would respond with violence
when it was unnecessary."
Wood returned to the United States shortly before the
unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, following the police shooting
of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teen, and the death of a
Baltimore man, Freddie Gray, while in police custody. "That
put things in a different light," he says. It made him wonder
"is there something big underlying it (police violence)."

Wood, who graduated in 2009 from the University of
Oklahoma with a degree in economics, says he would like
to practice international law with a focus on civil rights
or economic rights.
He says of his time in India, "There's a real sense that
the work that's being done there will have a big effect on
what will happen next. Things there are changing very
rapidly."

Important Impacts
Having an impact on the world is a key component of the
University of Minnesota's MSID program. The university
has a long history of organizing social justice internships
for its students. It launched the MSID program in 1983.
The program has existed for many years in Kenya, Ecuador, India, and Senegal, and the university added an MSID
program in Thailand this school year.
All the MSID programs follow the same format. Students spend the first half of the program in the classroom
in their host location, and the second half is spent doing
an internship or research project in the country, working with a grassroots community organization, says Heidi
Soneson, program director in the university's Learning
Abroad Center.
