Students attending Master in International Relations and Diplomacy Programme at Schiller International University (Heidelberg Campus) visited the Council of Europe in Strasbourg (France) with their Professor, Dr. Alenka Verbole
The two days study trip within the framework of the Conflict and Peace Strategies Course allowed the students to engage in a constructive dialogue with the Council of Europe high profile officials. Among others they met with Mr Matjaz Gruden, Director of Democratic Participation and Mr Dmitri Marchenkov, Deputy Head of co-operation and external relation service a.i. at the CoE Congress of Local and regional Authorities learning more about the Council, its mandate, and its approach to the conflict prevention and peacebuilding.
While the Council of Europe does not engage it the matters of defense issues it plays an important role in conflict prevention and reconciliation. A presentation of Ms Myrtia Murgia, Programme Officer, and Mr Andrew Forde, Advisor, both CoE Directorate of Political Affairs explained in details the reconciliation efforts of the CoE when dealing with frozen and protracted conflicts. Another special session took place focusing on the Dayton Peace Agreement with the first ambassador of Bosnia and Herzegovina to the CoE, Mr Igor Davor Gaon.
Today our students took the opportunity to visit SAP, one of the biggest business software companies in the world with regional offices in over 180 countries.
