The Embassy of the United States of America to visit Lund University
08 October 2012
On Wednesday 10 October, the US embassy will set up its mobile representation in the Lund University’s main building, Universitetshuset. Students and anyone else who is interested can come along to ask questions and meet US Ambassador Mark Brzezinski.
Ambassador Mark Brzezinski will hold a lecture for students who want to find out more about the ongoing presidential election in the US and its foreign policy or opportunities to study and work in the United States. The lecture will be followed by a question and answer session with the Association of Foreign Affairs in Lund (Utrikespolitiska föreningen). The lecture will begin at 13:00.
When: Wednesday 10 October at 13.00
Where: Universitetshuset, Paradisgatan 2, Lund
The US embassy’s visit is part of a “Roadshow”, in which the embassy visits various locations around Sweden and temporarily sets up its mobile embassy.
When President Obama acceded to the presidency in 2009, he wanted the Department of State’s missions abroad to go beyond the capital and travel around their host country in an effort to promote dialogue and openness. This led to the idea of a Roadshow in which several of the embassy’s divisions and services would participate.
The purpose of the Roadshow is to make it easier for people to come into contact with the embassy to ask questions, and to enable an exchange of experiences between Swedes and Americans.
