Padua Hosts Pakistan Project Educational Series


This year Padua Academy hosts the Delaware Lahore Delhi Partnership for Peace’s Pakistan Project Educational Series, which introduces high school students to the issues of world peace, politics, and diplomacy. Since its founding in 2010, the educational series has brought together juniors and seniors from Wilmington area schools for lectures and discussions with distinguished speakers and noted academics from the United States and Pakistan.

This year’s first educational session, held at Padua on On Nov. 13, featured an informative discussion led by United States Ambassador and Senior Advisor for Pakistan and Afghanistan, Robin Raphel. Ambassador Raphel has an extensive background in politics as an economic analyst and a member of the CIA. Her lecture at Padua was to give students a better understanding of South Asia. She shared her ideas on how amends can be made to alleviate tensions between India, the United States, and Pakistan. Approximately 600 students from 6 Wilmington high schools attended. Click here for a video of her presentation, her interview with PATV, and the News Journal’s coverage of Ambassador Raphel’s visit to Padua.
