The EUROSUD Consortium would like to Congratulate our second year Erasmus Mundus International Master student, Irakli Gabidzashvili who won an international Essay Competition organised by the Slovak Agency for International Development and Cooperation. The topic of the essay was “What role will the Arctic and Space play in geopolitics?“.  As a winner, Irakli was invited to attend the GLOBSEC Bratislava Forum in Slovakia, Bratislava on June 15-17 where he had an opportunity to meet and interact with European leaders, top diplomats and worldwide experts. Speakers included foreign Ministers of 12 countries and Presidents of Poland, Slovakia and Croatia, Federal Chancellor of the Republic of Austria and his holiness Pope Francis.  He attended the event in-person and his participation was supported by Slovak Agency for International Development Cooperation.

Irakli had the opportunity to ask a question to Foreign Ministers of North Macedonia, Croatia and Slovenia.
