#DiplomaticLingo: Ex Gracia- something which is done as a gesture of good will and not on the basis of an accepted legal obligation.
#usfmep strives to achieve #peace through #education. We recently hosted and organized a successful reception, where President Salwa Kader was a keynote speaker, for a masters program in Political Science with a proposed concentration in #UnitedNations studies offered by #Rutgers University. The UN-focused curriculum, proposed by His Excellency Ambassador Hamid al-Bayati, former Ambassador of the Permanent Mission of Iraq to the United Nations, is tailored to meet the needs of the UN professional family and all scholars interested in such studies. This unique concentration is among the first of its’ kind. We are excited to see its’ potential as a peace-building method through cultural education grow.
#StatisticoftheDay: via @UN, 2.5 million people are in forced labour (as a result of #trafficking) at any given time. Our informative panels educate the vulnerable to reduce the amount of trafficking victims.
