Every semester, our Buenos Aires students are invited to the U.S Embassy for presentations and a tour of the building. It’s an excellent opportunity for our students to get a first-hand look at how U.S. diplomacy works abroad, and the day-to-day life of diplomats at U.S. embassies.
On March 27th, nearly 50 students (and several Center staff members and faculty) attended a presentation by two U.S. Embassy officials: one from the Political Section and the other from the Environment, Science, Technology, and Health Section. They discussed the upcoming elections in Argentina, bilateral relations between the United States and Argentina, and shared examples of how the two countries successfully collaborate.
Afterward, the Embassy’s chief architect gave students a tour of the building, the French neoclassical Palacio Bosch, which serves as both the U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires and the Ambassador’s residence.
