ABOUT

OPERATION TWELVE


Carousel imageCarousel imageCarousel imageCarousel image

MISSION

Our main mission is to study the effects of unstable conditions, trauma (due to explosions, war, political instability) on societies and how people are able to cope with the hideous circumstances they are facing. The research is mostly concentrated on the middle east as it has been a region of major political, economical, and general instability over the last decades.

WHY UNDERGRADUATES?

corporations and internship positions are requiring many years of experience for an entry-level position. students are thus directed to low-paying jobs, or sometimes jobs that are not related to their field of study just to gain that experience. that is why we are offering a space for undergraduates to apply their knowledge and gain experience at their own pace while still contributing to research that is related to their field of interest.
