Washington D.C. is the headquarters of the majority of the world’s international organisations. This unit comprises a two-week stay in Washington D.C. It aims to provide an intensive study tour of Washington D.C., giving students first-hand experience and access to practitioners of complex international public policy-making in major global governance institutions, as well as non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and leading think tanks, as well as hear from practitioners of international relations.
Students will learn about the objectives, policy practices and ethical, legal and financial obligations of a range of institutions operating in the Washington D.C. area. Visits may include international finance and banking institutions, international organisations focused on security, development and/or the environment, international NGOs, and American federal political organisations and institutions.
This program is conducted over the American summer and may pose risk to dehydration or students affected by hot weather conditions, so cool and comfortable clothes are recommended.
