Le 130e IHEDN Ile-de-France youth cycle

From 25 to 30 April 2022, the Ecole Militaire hosted the 130e cycle Jeunes Ile-de-France de l'IHEDN. It brought together 77 young people, both working people and students, aged between 20 and 30, with a shared interest in defence, national security and international relations issues.

The young auditors were able to take advantage of the IHEDN's characteristic educational triptych: reflection in committees leading to the drafting of a position paper; high-level conference-debates; visits to defence industrial sites (Ariane Group, MBDA, Nexter and Thalès) as well as a military site (Orléans-Bricy Air Base 123).

On Saturday 30 April, the end-of-cycle session was held at the Cercle National des Armées, where the work of the committees was presented in the presence of Jean-Michel Delvert, sub-prefect, head of the IHEDN's regional and specialised activities department, and Annie Jafalian, from the studies and research department.

The IHEDN's youth programme has been awarded France Compétences certification.

Congratulations to all the participants for their involvement and interest in defence and national security issues.
