(Washington, DC) On 8 April, the Program Director for the Executive Education Program of the Center for African Studies, Michael Walsh, delivered a half-day foreign policy planning workshop for a group of foreign policy leaders from Mozambique. 

Held at the Meridian International Center, the custom workshop was designed to provide the Mozambican delegation with an overview of the U.S. foreign policy making process. The workshop included a series of foreign policy planning roundtables that revolved around U.S.-Africa relations.

The workshop was one component of the Single Country Project entitled “Curriculum Development for Training Diplomats.” This project was specifically designed to meet the current needs of foreign policy leaders in Mozambique. Administered by the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) On Demand Division, the project ran from 6-17 April 2024.

The International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program. Launched in 1940, the IVLP is a professional exchange program that seeks to build mutual understanding between the U.S. and other nations through carefully designed short-term visits to the U.S. for foreign leaders.
