Their purpose was to gain an understanding of Norway’s foreign policy and their key interests in Kenya and Africa, preparation for the group’s participation in the Sixty-Fourth Session of the Harvard National Model United Nations.

While making a presentation to the delegation led by Mr. Ahmed Kadid Adan (School of Humanities and Social Sciences Representative at the Student Affairs Council) on Norwegian foreign and UN policy, Mr. David C. Jourdan (Political Counselor, Royal Norwegian Embassy), underlined the necessity of a well-functioning global legal order, “It is crucial that relations between states are regulated by a network of binding rules and regulations.”
