In conjunction with the 48th anniversary of the establishment of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), SESRIC will organize a ‘Training Workshop for Junior Diplomats from OIC Member States’ on 21-23 November 2017, in Istanbul, the Republic of Turkey.

The training aims at enhancing the capacities and skills of junior diplomats who are conscious of the political, economic, social, and security challenges that the Muslim world and the international community are facing and convinced of the important role of the OIC and its institutions in addressing these challenges. The training is also expected to promote and enhance the understanding of the position of the junior diplomats to contribute throughout their career to the improvement of the image of Islam and Muslim World.

The training workshop will be organized in three days, parallel to the 33rd Session of the COMCEC that will be held on 20-23 November 2017 in Istanbul. During the programme, presentations, lectures, panel discussions and simulations will be held.
