Erika Laubacher-Kubat IVLP Participant on Crises Management in 2018

“When I left for Washington in 2018 to join the IVLP on Crisis Management I felt privileged:  A perfectly organized study trip on crisis management was ahead of me! Along with all the knowledge, information exchange and new perspectives I gained from visiting US counterparts, I was part of a special group of persons with whom I am still in touch today.  We had informative meetings and encounters with experts and practitioners in Washington, Boise, Houston, Denver. and New York. Over the three weeks I started to understand and appreciate the similarities and differences in crisis management systems between Switzerland and the United States. The interaction with the exciting personalities of our group was a highlight and intensified the learning experience. I will always cherish this experience and still feel privileged today to have been selected for this program. “
