Coming to ISPD…

ISPD will host Alice Hecht, the former Chief of Protocol at the United Nations for Kofi Annan and Ban Ki-Moon, from 8 to 9 February 2012. Her first lecture delves into her vast experience of working in the UN predominantly in the New York, but also in Kosovo and in Iraq, where she worked alongside the Commission charged with the destruction of WMDs. This lecture will reveal some of the challenges and opportunities that she has encountered in working with 193 nations, and will discuss the UN’s code of conduct in cross-cultural relations. Her second presentation will disclose the current techniques and practices used by lobbyists at the United Nations and will provide insight as to how interest groups can best promote and push forward their divergent policy objectives.
