One more year, we had the pleasure of celebrating the Course on Current Issues in Spanish Foreign Policy in collaboration with the Diplomatic School of MAEC.


This has been the XVII Edition of the course, and has had a huge variety of topics, which have dealt with the future challenges of areas such as Africa or India, as well as crosscutting themes such as the Sustainable Development agenda or the concept of security and terrorism in today's society.


We had the pleasure of having a group of diplomats from the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, specialized in each of the areas or areas that were exposed day by day:


  • Dª Ambassador Beatriz Larrotcha, Assistant Secretary for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, MAEC.
  • Mr. Raúl Fuentes Milani, Deputy Director General of Institutional Affairs, MAEC.
  • Mr. Fidel Sendagorta, General Director for North America, Asia and the Pacific, MAEC.
  • Mr. Javier García-Larrache Olalquiaga, Deputy Director General of International Cooperation against Terrorism, Drugs and Organized Crime, General Directorate for Foreign Policy and Security, MAEC.
  • Mr. Raimundo Robredo Rubio, General Director for Africa, MAEC.
  • Mr. Juan Francisco Montalbán Carrasco, Ambassador in Special Mission for the 2030 Agenda, MAEC.


In addition to the vision on the ground, contributed by the diplomats, each roundtable counted with the participation of an academic expert in the theme of each session:


  • Dr. Josep Maria Castellà, Professor of Constitutional Law, University of Barcelona.
  • Dr. Nicolás de Pedro, Principal Investigator, CIDOB.
