"The Harvard Kennedy School announced Friday the spring 2012 recipients of its Fisher Family Fellowship, an award that recognizes excellence and innovation in diplomacy and brings fellows to Cambridge to engage with both Kennedy School students and the broader Cambridge community.
The Fisher Family Fellows program, established in 2010 by the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs’ Future of Diplomacy Project, has selected three recipients: Shyam Saran, the Indian government’s former foreign secretary; Javier Solana, who has served as NATO secretary general and the European Union's high representative for Common Foreign and Security Policy; and Timothy P. Shriver, the president and chief executive officer of Special Olympics.
..."Saran and Solana will join the Fisher Family program’s inaugural fellow", Said Tayeb Jawad, who has served as Afghanistan's ambassador to the United States, to share some of their most recent experiences as diplomats in the thick of the international affairs scene.
Saran will be in residence from Feb. 13 to Feb. 17, Solana during the month of April, and Shriver during the first week of April...."
