The International Economic Development Program (IEDP) – learning in action


This year, IEDP went to Greece. It was a particularly interesting destination, with well publicized challenges being faced in Greece related to their economy and the ongoing refugee crisis. For some of the meetings, the group of 22 students divided into 2 groups, one focused on economic development issues and the other focused on the refugee crisis. Each of the groups met with many stakeholders in Greece, learning first hand about the issues and interacting with government officials, community members and refugee groups.
