Omar Ba

Master’s cycle student (2015-2017), intern at the Ligue de l’enseignement [League for Education] (International Relations Department)

« My main mission was to organize the Annual General Meeting of the “Ligue Internationale de l’Enseignement, l’Education et de la Culture Populaire” [International League for Teaching, Education and Popular Culture]. The French League for Education is a founding member of this organization which gathers together around twenty other organizations in sixteen countries. My second mission was to write a recommendations guide for leaders of a sociocultural workshop program in Morocco. I also acted as an instructor and jury member for allocation of funds for international development and solidarity projects.
This internship enabled me to gain first-hand experience of international work and to be at the heart of the challenges and constraints of international action.»

Bérénice Bergmann

3rd year bachelor’s degree student (2017-2018), intern at the French Embassy in Chad (Diplomatic Chancery Office)

« The Sahel region is of particular interest to the international media, it is currently plunged into insecurity by a terrorist threat which continues to strike the region. Paradoxically, the rest of the country is welcoming and focused on development.
During my internship, I had the opportunity to work with the Ambassador and his advisors. I wrote reports for the Embassy Heads of Department, diplomatic notes for the Deputy Head of Mission and participated in organizing events (with the Standing Committee on Administrative Cooperation in particular). »
