The trip takes two very different looks at international relations; before leaving, there will be a class introducing the basic structure of the IGOs visited. On the first day of the trip students see the formal side and visit two key international organizations, the European Commission and NATO. They are given briefings on topical issues facing the organizations and the responses which are being formulated to address the issues. There are informal meetings representatives of Brussels’ political organizations, from some of the many parties present at the IGOs. On the second day, they visit some of the key political sites in the city and the museum and battlefield of Waterloo. There is a final classroom session to draw conclusions from the trip
