• Study visits for young political leaders with the American Council of Young Political Leaders
The Foundation for Pluralism has organized study visits in Romania for delegations of young American politicians in 1998, 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011. They met with representatives of the Government and Presidency, members of Parliament and local officials. They also had the opportunity to visit museums and special places, but more importantly to meet special people. The “live” encounter with Romania and its people had an important impact for each of them, and the connections and relationships established during each visit were maintained and grew in time. Delegations of young Romanian politicians were received by ACYPL in 1996, 2001, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2012. the young Romanian politicians met with prominent American political personalities (the State Department, USAID, the Republican Party, the Democrat Party, governors, members of the US Senate and Congress) and with representatives of active civic organizations in the areas of minorities, human rights and environmental protection.
