International Capstone Projects 2013

It is fitting that on the weekend of December 7th, a date that "...will live in infamy...", was also when twenty-seven students presented their final projects (called "capstones") at Columbia University. Thirteen of which focused on international issues; here is a brief taste of some of them.
