The Art of Diplomacy: Lessons from COVID-19 - An Alumni Insight Event
On the occasion of the 35th Anniversary of the GCSP's oldest course the “Leadership in International Security Course” (LISC), formerly the International Training Course in Security Policy (ITC), a series of Alumni Insight events are being convened each month with professional contributions by ITC-LISC Alumni on selected topics in international peace and security.
The topic of this March session is “The Art of Diplomacy: Lessons from COVID-19”. The complex nature of COVID-19 has reaffirmed the importance of inclusive, multi-stakeholder efforts to ensure an effective crisis response. The diplomatic dimension, within this context, is key. In this 3rd edition of our Alumni Insights series, H.E. Ambassador Firas Khouri, Permanent Representative of the Foreign Ministry of Jordan to the COVID-19 Crisis Cell, National Center for Security and Crises Management (NCSCM) will provide an overview of Jordan’s efforts to mitigate COVID-19. He will share his experience and insights on the role of diplomacy throughout the pandemic, and in helping to shape responses.
H.E. Firas Khouri is an alumnus of the GCSP International Training Course (ITC) 2003-2004.
