Diary of a MIR Student


We’re back in full swing and already deep into classes for our third and final normal trimester at IE.  But still the memories of the week in Brussels live on and are frequently revisited between me and my colleagues. We received numerous talks from leaders from various institutions.  Highlights for me include the Parliament, Commission and Council as well as NATO.  We were able to mix with men and women wearing military garb from all over the world and other very influential global players. The personal highlight for me was a dinner and get-together at the personal residence of the Saudi Ambassador to both Belgium and Luxembourg.  For now, its back to the books as we’ve already had a few classes touching on democracy in Latin America, Game Theory and also the Middle East.  It looks like its going to be another challenging and interesting trimester.
