Lincoln South Rotary Club is fortunate to have another group of International visitors to our Club. These visitors are invited to the United States under the auspices of the Department of State's International Visitor Leadership Program.
The Department of State has outlined the following specific objectives for the project:
  • Expose participants to the U.S. security and defense policy‑making process and perspectives on global issues;
  • Examine specific security issues, such as regional conflicts, weapons proliferation, energy security, homeland security, international terrorism, and the use of preventive diplomacy to address these challenges;
  • Discuss the European security architecture, including the evolving roles of NATO, the EU, the UN and other international organizations in dealing with global crises;
  • Explore the benefits of U.S.‑European cooperation on security policy worldwide.
