Jessica Kline is associate program officer for the mass violence and atrocities prevention team at the Stanley Center for Peace and Security. In her role, she assists in the design and implementation of programming that engages a diverse network of stakeholders to help societies prevent, respond to, and recover from mass atrocities. Before coming to the center, Kline completed internships with the US Department of State’s Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs, the Carter Center’s Democracy Program, and the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. She also studied in Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Singapore, and Ecuador, allowing her to gain a greater understanding of regional human rights issues and response mechanisms. Kline focused her graduate studies on human rights law and gender analysis in international affairs, and wrote her thesis on the evolution of the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar. She holds an MA in law and diplomacy from the Fletcher School at Tufts University and a BS in international affairs and modern languages from Georgia Tech.
