NEW YORK, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Brian Safran is proud to announce his recent graduation from the Center for Global Affairs at New York University in January 2012. Safran completed his graduate program with a 3.98 GPA, earning a Master of Science degree in Global Affairs (with distinction).
His Master's thesis, entitled "A Critical Look at Western Perceptions of China's Intellectual Property System," was largely developed during a Global Field Intensive in China during the summer of 2010. The program, offered through New York University, was a graduate-level study-abroad program in China that focused on the political, economic, and social challenges to China's reemergence as an enormous force in the global economy. Its participants met with leading academics and practitioners in areas including US-China relations, the trajectory of the Chinese economy and its implications, and the environmental and social challenges facing China in the 21st century.
As part of the trip, Safran and his class had the opportunity to meet with representatives of the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai and ask direct questions pertaining to student areas of interest. Safran pursued independent research on China's intellectual property system and met with leading law firms and business representatives to discuss its challenges.
Transnational corporations are largely channeling their energies into their respective Chambers of Commerce to complain about China's lack of enforcement of IPR. However, according to Safran's research findings, evidence suggests that such firms are not availing themselves to the protections the Chinese system affords. His paper has been selected for publication in Vol. 3, Ed. 2 of the University of Puerto Rico Law School's Business Law Journal.
An additional paper, written by Safran for his International Human Rights Law course, entitled "Juvenile Justice Policy from the Perspective of International Human Rights," is slated for publication this fall in the Cardozo Law Review de•novo of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.
While the work done during his Master's program at the Center for Global Affairs continues to find its way into the public arena, Brian Safran is happy to be putting his skills and knowledge in foreign affairs and global political economy to use as an immigration paralegal at a corporate immigration law firm in New York.
