GLF Vice Chairman Joe Clark, accompanied by Projects Director Amitav Banerji, were once again in New York in late September, at the time of the annual session of the UN General Assembly. They met a Head of Government who has shown interest in GLF support.
They also held discussions with the following partner organisations at senior level: EastWest Institute, the International Institute for Democracy & Electoral Assistance and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. In addition, there was a meeting with the head of the Electoral Assistance Division of the UN Department for Political Affairs. The discussions with these organisations, apart from enhancing awareness of GLF and its work, explored ways in which collaboration could take place in future.
