Josiah Kaplan Visits Hopkins.

Julia Kosinski '21 Assistant News Editor
Dr. Josiah Kaplan, this year’s Hopkins Spring Fellow, will visit Hopkins and speak in Assembly on Friday, May 11.
Kaplan is currently a Research Advisor at Save the Children International in London where he serves on the Global Migration and Displacement Initiative (MDI) team.

After graduating Hopkins as a member of the class of 2001, Kaplan attended Dartmouth College, where he received a BA in International Relations. Kaplan then attended the University of Oxford, earning both a Masters in International Development and a PhD in International Relations.

Kaplan's 2001 Hopkins yearbook page discusses his commitment to The Razor, Debate Club, and his leadership role in the History Club, sharing some of his busy participation in school activities. Art teacher, and a member of the committee responsible for choosing the spring fellow, Eric Mueller, believes Kaplan must have certainly been a “serious and strong student.” Mueller further stated: “It will be interesting to hear how he evolved from his Hopkins days through his time at Dartmouth and then Oxford.”

Kaplan’s current role at Save the Children as Research Advisor for MDI, makes him responsible for facilitating research on child-focused migration and displacement. He is an expert in both international aid and security affairs. Kaplan has previously advised and provided expertise on research practice in humanitarian settings. In his capacity as a research associate with University of Oxford Humanitarian Innovation Project (HIP), Kaplan also coordinates research involving the refugee crisis in East Africa and the Middle East, as well as disaster response operations. Kaplan’s co authored book, Refugee Economies: Forced Displacement and Development, discusses refugee based innovation that can lead to improvement in refugee economies.
