Economic Diplomacy Series seeks to examine the intersection of economics and foreign policy, covering everything from the finance industry to global trade.

Ambassador Series offers YPFP members the chance to meet with Ambassadors (of the EU and beyond) in a “fireside chat” setting to discuss their countries’ stances on foreign policy issues.

Briefing Series Lectures on today’s most pressing current events making the headlines that provide YPFP members with the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the subject addressed.
