SIB Diplomat Drinks 2019

On the 6th of June, SIB-Amsterdam hosted the Diplomat Drinks at De Brug, Roeterseilandcampus of the UvA. Diplomats from the UK, Ukraine, Turkey, Denmark, and the UN studies professor were invited to meet students and talk about their work and careers. We kicked off the evening with a presentation by Jaikini Bisselink, the Youth representative for the UN about the importance of youth participation in the decision making processes. This followed by the round table in which students had the opportunity to ask diplomats about their in-depth experiences and about the various political issues concerning their country. Topics such as the EU, Brexit and Crimea were up for discussion. Overall, it was a social and especially informative evening where students and diplomats could share ideas and extent their network.
