International Relations Conference / Mansfield College – Oxford

MARINA RUETE, Report

Program As the date of departure to Oxford was arriving, my anxiety raised. And from the moment I step foot at Mansfield College, I felt the excitement of a new city, meeting new people from different backgrounds and countries, and learning international relations from experts in a broad range of Programsubjects.
That Sunday I met all of my co-delegates which came from many corners of the world and Dame Mary Richardson, the Chairman of ESU, had dinner with us and gave a speech with a warm welcome and explained the goals of the ESU.

 



MERCEDES YAPUR, Report

My experience in the International Relations Conference of the ESU was absolutely extraordinary. My expectations were by far surpassed. Not only were the lectures extremely interesting, but I was mainly surprised by the level of interaction amongst us delegates and the lecturers. Everyone was eager to share their perspectives and opinions on matters affecting the global community. I think the best part of the lectures was that they were extremely personalized. The best lecturers were those who told us of their personal experiences and really got us involved, which in turn invited other to share. And many times we also had the pleasure of having the lecturers join us for dinner (and even at pubs, on occasion).



FELIPE ZABALZA, Report

ProgramBeing selected to represent ESU Argentina at the International Relations Conference 2011 has been a true honour and in turn, a huge responsibility. Argentina´s participation in this event demonstrates our joint commitment to reaching a global understanding of pertinent world issues through the exploration and sharing of initiatives for best practice, which I am proud to be a part of.
The Conference joined 23 delegates from 19 countries at Mansfield College, Oxford and has been a unique opportunity to interact and debate with professionals from different cultures and fields, exchange ideas and experiences through a common spoken language.

The English-Speaking Union
International Relations Conference
Sunday 17th – Saturday 23rd July 2005
Oriel College, Oxford

The ESU International Relations Conference will deal with a variety of issues relating to both to International Relations and to Britain's international role in the world today. The aim of the Conference is to give participants the opportunity to expand their knowledge of Britain and to widen their outlook on world issues. It also offers a unique opportunity to make individual contacts with people from various fields, cultures and backgrounds. In 2004 33 delegates attended the Conference and they represented a total of 24 countries. The majority of delegates were young professionals from the fields of trade and industry, law, journalism, teaching and the diplomatic service.

During the week five main topics will be covered: British Institutions; International Relations; Arts and Media; Law and Governance and Trade and Industry. Each session will take the form of a short lecture followed by a comprehensive discussion involving all delegates. There will also be a visit to a performance of Shakespeare.

The conference is an annual event and has taken place annually for over 40 years. The venue has traditionally been one of the colleges in Oxford and in 2005, as in the last twelve years, it will be held in Oriel.

Previous speakers have included;
Sir Brian Fall GCVO KCMG, Special Representative of the British Government for the South Caucasus, Lord Watson of Richmond CBE, Chairman, Burson-Marsteller Europe; Lady Appleyard, Deputy Chairman, The English-Speaking Union; Alan Lee Williams OBE, Director, The Atlantic Council; William Fell CMG International Risk Adviser, British Airways; Dr Alastair Niven OBE, Principal of Cumberland Lodge and Visiting Professor of Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University and Ralph Land CBE, Chairman of the Russo-Britain Chamber of Commerce.



Ricardo Barreiro-Deymonnaz, a young lawyer with the firm Allende & Brea, has been selected as candidate for the scholarship to attend the Summer conference International Britain, to be held at Oriel College, Oxford, from from 11-17 July, 2004.

The program is aimed at young professionals who use the English language as a tool for their everyday work. It includes lectures on topics of great interest, including international law, international trade, foreign investments, criminal law, the British parliamentary system, media and the press, education, the arts, and terrorism. It gives scholars the unique opportunity to learn directly from experts on these fields as well as the opportunity to make friends from different parts of the world.

The ESU, through outside sponsors, covers the value of the tuition, accommodation and meals during the stay. The air fare and travel expenses London-Oxford-London must be borne by the candidates.
