Tuesday, Afternoon
After class, stat lab and a quick lunch, I set up for the mock negotiation on the Malian crisis and security of the Sahel for my “Contemporary Diplomacy” class. John Hirsch, the professor, is a former US ambassador with 32 years of experience in the US Foreign Service. He now works for IPI (the International Peace Institute). He is an inspiration and a valuable resource as I prepare for a career in diplomacy myself.
