Upcoming Visitors

Upcoming International Groups for 2022

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)

Empowering Women in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Legislative Branches, a Single Country Project  December 11th - Dec. 14th
We are very excited to have such a great IVLP topic to close out the end of our busy programming year! We are welcoming 9 international visitors from Pakistan for this single country project. The objectives for this program include connecting with local professional resources to help examine the role of political parties, the media, and grassroots political organizations in the U.S. electoral and policymaking process. We will have meetings with NH state women legislators to learn more about their roles and responsibilities as elected officials. Visitors will get the opportunity to learn how NH local government works to engage women and youth to be actively engaged in politics, advocacy, leadership and campaigning here in the Granite State. 


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.
