Come to Paris to experience soft power diplomacy in action. Soak in the sights, sounds, and flavors of the City of Light as we discover how France puts its best foot forward on the world stage. We’ll explore how culture, art, cuisine, sports, education, and international diplomacy are presented and lived in Paris and how the French use these elements to build lasting and meaningful connections with the United States and the world. We’ll experience a wide range of site visits that will allow us to see soft power firsthand. Versailles, the Louvre, France Éducation, Fulbright France, the Museum of the Army, the Franco-American Museum, the Museum of the History of Immigration, the Senate of France, the OECD, and UNESCO are just some of the places we’ll visit. Day trips to locations such as Brussels, Strasbourg, Rouen, and Chartres will allow us to dive into more ways that France connects with visitors, Europe, and the world. In the classroom we’ll study how art, cuisine, international organizations, and more are used by France to build a positive view of itself among other nations, and then we’ll take to the streets to see that diplomacy in action. We’ll gain a greater understanding of how countries move beyond traditional diplomatic channels to affect real change.
