The Future of Diplomacy Project at Harvard Kennedy School’s (HKS) Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs has announced the 2011 Fisher Family Fellows. They include International Herald Tribune columnist Roger Cohen; Nabil Fahmy, the founding dean of the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the American University in Cairo; and Anne-Marie Slaughter, professor at Princeton University and former director of policy planning for the U.S. Department of State.
All three fellows will be delivering public addresses and working closely with HKS degree students during their time Cambridge.
“All three of our fellows bring a breadth of practical experience in international affairs to the Kennedy School,” said R. Nicholas Burns, professor of the practice of diplomacy and international politics at HKS and director of the Future of Diplomacy Project. “They are leaders in their respective fields, as journalists, diplomats, and academics. Their time on campus will allow them to engage our students on the role diplomacy can and must play in addressing some of the most pressing issues of our time, including the transformation of the Middle East and relations between established and emerging global powers.”
The fellows’ work at HKS is made possible through the Richard and Nancy Fisher Family Fellows Program, created by Nancy and Richard W. Fisher ’71, longtime supporters of Harvard’s international engagement and teaching.
