Members of the IRC convened on Sunday afternoon for an adventure over to Baked n’ Wired, one of DC’s famous cupcake shops, for a foreign policy discussion. After grabbing cupcakes, the group of more than twenty IRCers representing all four classes at Georgetown moved on over to the beautiful Georgetown waterfront. This coffee hour, held on a curiously sunny January day, was a way for IRC members to get to know each other through lively, engaging conversation. With cupcakes in hand, the topics of conversation included all of the following: potential courses of action for the international community with regard to the situation in Iran, the use of force following Mali’s coup d’état, and cartel violence in Latin America. We learned a lot about international relations, current events, and, most importantly, each other.
This event was organized by Jeffrey Caso, Director of Academic Programming, with the help of the entire Academic Programming sub-board. Special thanks to de facto discussion leader Anais Carmona.
