On October 10 ten master students of the Public Administrative Academy of RA took part in round-table role-play discussion on ‘World Refugee Crisis’ which was organized by the department of Public Relations of the US Embassy in Armenia. About 40 students from other institutions also participated in the discussion. The discussion subject was very actual. Today the refugee crisis is one of the most worrying issues in the world which requires urgent solution.
In the first halve of the discussion the invited representatives from KAZA Foundation, ‘Mission Armenia’ NGO, ‘Aleppo’ Compatriotic Charitable Organization offered the core of refugee crisis and attempts of their organizations to solve the problem. In the second halve case-study was suggested to the participant. They formed two groups and they tried to find solution through role-play with the help of their knowledge, specialists and group negotiations.
The discussion was quite meaningful. The participants not only gained new information on the issue, but they were given an opportunity to improve their knowledge on diplomacy as well as skills of negotiation and quick orientation.
