Dr Imène Ajala, Lecturer of International Relations and Political Science, recently completed an International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) in the United States focused on “Women Leaders: Promoting Peace and Security,” after being nominated and selected by the US Mission to the United Nations and Other International Organizations in Geneva.

The IVLP is a prestigious professional exchange program of the US Department of State, which annually brings to the United States 5’000 foreign nationals from all over the world to meet and confer with their professional counterparts.

Ajala traveled to Washington, New York, San Diego and Austin, and had meetings with academic experts, government officials and civil society groups to explore issues related to gender and security.
