During the next two weeks, IVC Detroit will welcome several groups of delegates invited to the United States under the auspices of the Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program. The groups are as follows:
2 professionals, a prosecutor for the National Court and an inspector for the Spanish National Police, focusing on “Combating International Crime”.
The goal of the program is for the delegates to examine the structure of the U.S. criminal justice system and to review how its principles are applied to the prosecution on international crime. Furthermore, the delegates will be exploring U.S. foreign policy priorities to build global cooperation against terrorism and other international crime, and examine the issues of balancing law enforcement and security with civil liberties.
1 professional, a Senior Analyst for the Research Institute for European and American Studies (RIEAS), focusing on “Muslim Culture in America”.
The goal of the program is for the delegate to gain an understanding of U.S. foreign policy toward the Muslim world, to explore the integration of Muslim communities in the U.S., to gain insight into the relation of U.S. culture and society with the Muslim world, and to learn about Islamic studies programs in U.S. educational institutions.
11 professionals, consisting of General Managers, Entrepreneuers, Directors and Consultants, focusing on “Entrepreneurship and Business Management”.
