The fact that the School was held outside Moscow significantly helped us to get to know each other better and become a strong team. Moreover, since the participants are working and studying in different places, the School could considerably improve the efficiency of interagency interaction” ‒ participant of the International School, Master’s graduate of the Faculty of International Relations, MGIMO University, Darya Pakhomova.
