Cambridge Immerse Global Leadership Seminar: Assessing a more interest-driven Europe in an increasingly insecure world

On 5 July 2018, I was providing a one-day training for 17-18 students in the framework of the Cambridge Immerse Global Leadership Summer School.

What creative and engaging minds!

In preparation I asked students about their views on foreign policy. The task sheet can be downloaded here.
