As a member of the committee for foreign activities you’ll help organise the foreign excursions that the SPIL organizes for its members. These include the bi-annual excursions to Brussels, a brief trip in January and an extended trip in July. Participating in a SPIL trip gives students of Political Science and Political Science – International Relations and Organizations a unique opportunity to experience politics in another country. In recent years the SPIL has visited Berlin, Washington D.C., Seoul, Prague and this year we're heading to Madrid!
On these trips, you will be shown the physical reality of the subjects your course by visiting parliaments, ministries, political parties, NAVO bases and embassies. Cultural activities are also a part of these trips to broaden the scope of your understanding of other countries. There is, of course, free time for participants to discover the local area and nightlife. All of this is organised by the foreign activities committee which is chaired by the foreign activities commissioner. As a member of this committee you’ll help to plan the destinations, organise in groups (cultural, academic, journalistic) the activities in the country and you’ll be responsible for the logistical elements of the journey. Do you enjoy traveling, do you want to be involved with your course in a hands-on approach and do you like of challenges? Then apply for the committee of Foreign Affairs!
