Professor Douglas Yates, AGS’s expert on African politics, and Larry Kilman, Associate Director of AGS and Assistant Professor of NGO Management, took part in the conference, organized by the NGO-UNESCO Liaison Committee on the theme, “Changing Minds, not the Climate: The Contribution of NGOs.”

Professors Yates and Kilman were invited to participate by Marie-Claude Machon-Honoré, permanent representative to UNESCO for the International Federation of Business and Professional Women and a member of the Liaison Committee.  The trio will meet later this month to discuss potential further collaboration.
