TourInter-American Defense College visits OAS

On September 14 and 15, 2011 students from Class 51 of the Inter-American Defense College (IADC) visited the OAS. The delegation was welcomed by representatives from various parts of the OAS. Students attended presentations and discussions where they learned about the Inter-American System, its work and functionalities. 

salon“The Inter-American Defense College is a fundamental seed of the Inter-American System, the training and education of military forces in our region fundamental when it comes to the education of future military leaders and the respect for democracy, human rights, and liberty” said Abraham Stein, Director of the Department of Defense and Hemispheric Security Department at the OAS.

Class 51 is made up of 63 students – all are high-ranking military and police officers that specialize in matters of security – representing 15 countries across the hemisphere. The Class is represented by 54 men and 10 women; of whom 10 are civilians, 44 are members of the military and 9 are police officers. Class 51 visited the OAS accompanied by 10 functionaries of the Inter-American Defense College.
firmaThe Inter-American Defense College is an academic institution that provides a multidisciplinary-professional, postgraduate education. The eleven-month program provides military officers and civilians with an understanding of government systems, current global affairs, the Inter-American System, and the opportunity to study the most relevant security and defense issues affecting the hemisphere and the world.
