Major General Adrian Foster CMG MBE, a top-level multi-national leader and manager and a retired British general who has worked for numerous years with the UN’s peacekeeping operations, visited MIUC to hold a seminar on conflict resolution in practice for our Masters and Bachelors students.
General Foster trained with the Royal Regiment of Artillery before being attached to the UN. General Foster discussed his various peacekeeping missions, and his talk at MIUC focused in particular on his deployment to the Democratic Republic of the Congo as a force commander of the UN’s Stabilization Mission there. He also discussed his experiences in New York, where he was Deputy Military Adviser to Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.
His engaging presentation led our students to ask searching questions of the General, who pleasantly and instructively replied with great insights.
MIUC would like to extend their appreciation and gratitude to General Foster for his visit, – a visit which will surely spark great discussions for the students of the Conflict Resolution and International Crisis Management course in the upcoming weeks.
