Ambassador Araud invited to speak at the American University
The high school students were selected to take part in the program for displaying qualities of leadership and an interest in a career in international relations. The ambassador spoke about current issues affecting diplomatic relations today, and the role of embassies and Ambassadors in diplomacy in a globalized society.
During the International Diplomacy conferences, students gain leadership skills through hands-on workshops and leadership development exercises. They study current security issues facing the global community while participating in a simulation of the United Nations Security Council, learn about peacekeeping operations around the world and discuss global health, environment and human right issues.
