On Wednesday, 4 August, the GCSP was very pleased to welcome a delegation of 70 young students in political science coming from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in visit to Switzerland for two weeks. The delegation was led by His Excellency S. E. Dr. Ali Abdelkader Al Hammadi, Director of the course and accompanied by Dr. Abdullatif Fakhfakh, representative of the UAE permanent Mission near the United Nations in Geneva.
After a presentation of the core activities of the GCSP in Geneva and worldwide, the students were given a guided tour of the GCSP and Maison de la paix facilities. They were then invited for a small reception on the top floor, where they could appreciate a great view of the various organisations that make up “International Geneva”.
The visit was part of growing cooperation between the GCSP and civilian and military educational institutions in the UAE, and more broadly with countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council.
