We are pleased to welcome Juliet Dryden as the new Director of BISA.
Juliet has worked in the field of international relations for the last 25 years specialising in programme management, international development and donor relations. She has previously worked at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House), the London School of Economics (LSE IDEAS) and for 15 years with the United Nations in Cairo, Gaza and Jerusalem (UNRWA, OCHA, UNOHCHR). She joins us from the West Asia -North Africa (WANA) Institute in Amman where she was the Director of Programmes. Juliet holds an MA in International Relations from the University of East Anglia. Juliet is taking on the role of Director at an exciting time for BISA – among her many tasks will be the rolling out of a new plan of development for the organisation. Members will hear more about this in due course. For now, we wish Juliet well in her new role.
- Mark Webber, BISA Chair on behalf of the Trustees
