Among other diplomatic postings, Ambassador Dussey has served as political counselor at the Embassy of Switzerland in Moscow and headed the International Security Section of the Swiss Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He studied at Tufts Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, the University of Fribourg, and Georgetown University. As a Weatherhead Fellow, he is spending the year researching crisis management, crisis leadership, and decision-making. Sponsored by the Crisis Management Student Group at Harvard Kennedy School and the Program on Crisis Leadership, this event will be of interest to those in a broad range of careers, who may be called upon to assist citizens and colleagues in crisis situations. Drinks and snacks provided.
