Upcoming International Groups for 2022







Investigating Violations of Human and Civil Rights of Marginalized Communities, a Single Country Project 
October 15th - October 19th

We are looking forward to hosting 3 international visitors from Belarus that identify as human rights activists. Professional meetings will include discussions on how the U.S., and specifically NH, work to advocate and protect human and civil rights for marginalized populations. Marginalized communities may be dependent on one’s ethnic, cultural, gender, racial, and/or religious affiliation. Visitors will get the opportunity to meet with multiple NH-based organizations that work towards elevating equality, dignity, and overall rights within various minority communities. 


Ending Gender-Based Violence, a Regional Project  November 17th - November 23rd

We are excited to host 15 international visitors from the countries of El Salvador, Peru, Venezuela, Spain, Costa Rica, Mexico, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, and Columbia. Professional meetings will be geared around NH organizations that combat gender-based violence, best practices for prevention, as well as techniques to identify forms of gender-based violence and how to report these harms and protect victims. Visitors will also get the opportunity to learn more about NH-based initiatives in connection to promoting community awareness, involvement, and cooperation to identify and address gender-based violence here in this state.


Rule of Law and the U.S. Judicial System, a Multi-Regional Project  December 2nd - December 7th

We will be welcoming 21 international visitors from multiple countries for this multi-regional project. As soon as we receive the visitors’ country information, we will update that list here. The objectives for this project include opportunities for IVLP participants to gain a deeper understanding of the federal and state judicial system for both criminal and civil matters under the U.S. model of federalism, examine underlying principles of the U.S. judicial and legal systems in connection to the Constitution and rule of law, and further understanding of the interactions between various entities in the legal system (example: law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, courts)







IVLP PROGRAM UPDATE 

In the past year WACNH has worked to navigate the challenges of the pandemic by working with the Office of International Visitors at the State Department and Global Ties U.S. During this time we have rapidly and successfully implemented IVLP Virtual Exchanges. While these will never replace in-person programming, it is proving to be a valuable tool for continuing to engage our global community in vital exchanges of ideas.

With many recent advances in vaccines the, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State has set a potential date of March 1, 2022 for in-person programming to resume.

We have been able to welcome back our first in person program with the Global and Regional Economic Cooperation project in April 2022. Our WACNH team will continue to also host virtual programs as they arise, and will do our best to produce top quality programs for exchange and further understanding for both our international visitors and local NH community members. 

Please note, the safety of U.S. citizens, as well as our international visitors, is a top priority. Additional updates will be provided as more information is received.
