From 21 to 25 January, for the fifth consecutive year, the Directorate of International Cooperation (DCI) organised, on the Middle East-Mediterranean Campus of Sciences Po Paris in Menton, the “Winter School”, a week of thematic lessons aimed at sensitising first-year students and creating vocations.

A privileged opportunity to promote Monaco’s international image, this year’s Winter School had the theme “Vulnerable Children in Africa and in the North Africa and Middle East Zone”.

The speakers, all specialists in the world of cooperation and development, came from both local NGOs, such as Tahaddi in Lebanon, Bayti in Morocco or SamuSocial Malian, and international organisations, such as the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the World Food Program (WFP), the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).
