GPF Exclusive Video Interview: Carne Ross on the Politics of Exclusion at the UN

After serving in the British diplomatic corps for fifteen years, Carne Ross founded Independent Diplomat, a non-profit organization that aims to provide consultation and assistance to disadvantaged or marginalized governments and political groups, enabling them to increase their diplomatic capacity and efficacy. Carne discusses the need for greater access and transparency in international diplomacy.
