Europe in Washington Workshop

In partnership with Harvard’s Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) and the Committee on Degrees in Social Studies (SSTUD), CES inaugurated the Europe in Washington Workshop on Democracy and Transatlantic Relations from January 21-25, 2020.

Harvard student participants with Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall and Elaine Papoulias (first row middle) at the Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, DC.

This experiential learning opportunity immersed Harvard College students in discussions with eminent experts on Europe in the U.S. capital from academia, international organizations, think-tanks and government service. The Workshop, much of which was hosted on the Washington Campus of CHS, was made possible by a generous grant from Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, Harvard AB ’81 and United States Deputy Secretary of Energy (2014-2017).

During the Workshop students exchanged ideas with diplomats, professors, analysts, practitioners of public policy and others at many organizations including the U.S. Department of State, International Monetary Fund, Brookings Institution, Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS), the EU Delegation to the U.S., The German Marshall Fund of the United States, McLarty Associates, and the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). Students also had a special opportunity to speak with Sherwood-Randall about her distinguished career in public service. The Workshop culminated with an event which convened the students and 100 Harvard alumni for a discussion led by Sherwood-Randall on transatlantic relations.
