Quynh Nguyen, MA


Quynh Nguyen is a PhD Candidate at both the University of Amsterdam and NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies with her research The US-VN politics of post-war reconciliation. This research is situated within the framework of the NWO-funded Vidi project: Bones of Contention: Technologies of Identification and Politics of Reconciliation in Vietnam, led by Dr. Tam T. T. Ngo, a senior researcher at the NIOD and the Max Planck Institute for the study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity (Goettingen, Germany). Within the Bones of Contention framework, I explore the politics of reconciliation between the United States and Vietnam in their collaboration to account for the war dead from both sides.

Prior to her research, Quynh Nguyen obtained an M.A. in Human Rights and Multi-level Governance from the University of Padua, Italy, and a B.A. in Government from Smith College, USA. During her academic career, her research interests focused on Sino-Vietnamese relations and Vietnam's political and education systems. Between studies, she honed her research skills and broadened her research interests at various international think tanks, including the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in Paris, France, and the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS) in Brussels, Belgium.
