The Globe is committed to providing an impartial and honest look into U.S. foreign policy and examines the most timely issues in international affairs.
Kathleen Taylor is a young professional in the international relations field, residing in the Washington, D.C. area. After earning an undergraduate degree in international relations from Roanoke College and a master’s degree in political science from American University, she has held positions specializing in foreign policy and national security at IGOs and federal agencies.
In her first professional experience, as an intern at the U.S. State Department, Ms. Taylor realized that her passion lay with the practical side of international politics. She became a news junkie, immersing herself in current events, and as a result of this pursuit she began blogging as an exercise for researching and deliberating topics of interest. Ms. Taylor enjoys the discipline of writing and research for developing a broader understanding of geopolitics and foreign relations. Her blog posts cover a range of diverse, global topics. Above all, she wants to offer an impartial, forthright, and succinct analysis of U.S. foreign policy and international affairs.
She is also a staff writer for Young Professionals in Foreign Policy. Most of these articles were also published on the organization’s blog, Charged Affairs.
