Director: Andrei Cursaru
My name is Andrei Cursaru and I am an internationally educated student with a background in politics and economics. I am currently in my third year at Lancaster University in the United Kingdom focusing primaril yon issues surrounding the topic of peace, security and international developement. I have participated and chaired in MUN's for time immemorial having the opportunity to work mainly in the Security Council.
I am honored to be chairing at LVMUN 2017 as the Director of the Council of Europe as this is not only a shift of my interests towards more humanitarian issues rather than security ones but also because I will have the chance to shape and inspire once a gain delegates that will hopefully push one day international cooperation forward as future diplomats.
I am truly looking forward meeting you all as well as seeing you debate fruitfully on the topics of our committee!
