As part of the partnership between the Monegasque Government and Science Po, the Directorate of International Cooperation organises every year, on the Campus Middle East-Mediterranean Science Po in Menton, “The Winter School”. The event is intended to raise awareness, for first year students, the issues of development aid and international solidarity.
The Winter School 2019, whose theme is “Vulnerable childhood in Africa and in the ANMO zone” (north Africa and the Middle East) brought together, around a round table, international experts, such as Dr. Jean-Baptiste Richardier, co-founder of Handicap International, Geneviève Wills, representative of the World Food Program to France and Monaco and Dr. Luciano Tuseo, WHO Malaria Officer.
Children’s health and nutrition were at the heart of the exchanges that took place in front of 130 students from 50 different nationalities. As a reminder, food security is a new field of intervention for international cooperation.
Round tables, thematic workshops in small groups and conferences will follow one another throughout the week with the participation of the partners of the Monegasque Cooperation.
The Winter School is one of the annual highlights of this partnership between the Prince’s Government and Science Po.
