Practitioner Seminar Series
During the course of the academic year 2017/18 IBEI will host a series of lectures by practitioners in the field of international relations and development. Speakers in 2017 have a background in peace building, social enterprise (Helena Puig Larrauri, Co-founder and Co-director of Build Up) and bilateral development cooperation (Andreas Lange, German Agency for Technical Development Cooperation). Additional speakers from the United Nations, the European Commission, and the World Bank have been confirmed for 2018 (dates and other speakers to be confirmed).
The practitioner lecture series is intended to give IBEI students and attendees an opportunity to engage with international professionals about their personal work experience, the organizations they represent, and to learn about possible career trajectories in international governmental and non-governmental organizations. Each lecture will allow ample room for questions and inputs from the audience. All IBEI community is welcome.
