Americans Abroad: Getting Things Done in Geneva

The U.S. Mission to the United Nations in Geneva is pleased to present the interview series “Americans Abroad: Getting Things Done in Geneva” highlighting the important work Americans do at the UN and other international organizations in Geneva.

The work of these Americans is enormously important, and what they do every day helps the many and varied organizations where they work achieve the successes that you hear about when the unthinkable happens – the earthquakes, pandemics, famines and movements of displaced peoples, but also working on other everyday issues as well, less dramatic, but also critical, from developing global health standards, to defending intellectual property rights and establishing telecommunication standards, among many others.
