Center for Governance and Sustainability
On Tuesday, March 12, Center for Governance and Sustainability hosted one of its center fellows, Katell Le Goulven, PhD, for a lecture and scholarly dialogue.
An expert on international development, Ms. Le Goulven works as a specialist at the multilateral system analysis unit at the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). Previously, she served as senior advisor in the secretariat of the UN Secretary-General's High Level Panel on Global Sustainability, senior program officer for the Commission on Climate Change and Development at Sweden's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and deputy director at the International Task Force on Global Public Goods.
According to its codirector Maria Ivanova, "The Center for Governance and Sustainability engages a wide range of fellows in its ongoing research and outreach projects. All fellows share their expertise with the center via joint projects and publications and lectures on campus or webcasts. In addition, they actively participate in the center’s network and may represent the center at various conferences and events. We were honored to host Dr. Le Goulven's lecture for our doctoral students."
Le Goulven presented at the new PhD program in Global Governance and Human Security at the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies. She lectured on international organizations and development and shared her experience working on the United Nations sustainable development agenda.
Le Goulven also joined Ivanova and her colleagues on the Center for Governance and Sustainability team for a lunchtime discussion.
