In one of the most inspiring campus events to date, 1,000 lucky GW students, including an unprecedented number from the Elliott School, enthusiastically participated in an April 25 town hall with the President of the Republic of France, Emmanuel Macron.
Why does Switzerland, surrounded by countries targeted for Islamic State attacks, remain untouched? Is a rigorous security policy keeping Europe’s “neutral” country safe? The answer, according to a team of Elliott School graduate students, is a firm “no.”
When French President Emmanuel Macron visited Washington on April 23-25, an Elliott School alumnus played an important role in ensuring a successful and smooth State Visit, the first of the Trump Administration. David Solomon, BA ’08, is a Senior Visits Officer in the Office of the Chief of Protocol at the U.S. Department of State.
The Elliott School hosts prominent political leaders, international experts, and scholars who discuss pressing issues of the day.
