SOAS has long-standing relationships with a number of overseas Ministries of Foreign Affairs and global charities who request tailored briefings for senior diplomats or staff members being posted to Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Typically these briefings are for one or two days and cover a range of topics including historical, political, economic and cultural background. They are a highly valued opportunity to talk to experts about specific issues affecting the region to ensure they are prepared for the particular challenges they will face on the ground.
