Country or Regional Liaison


Main Topic: Politics and International Relations
Secondary Topic: Human Geography

Overview:  Country or Regional Liaisons serve as a link between their employer and members of the global community, usually a country or a region of the world. They are responsible for cultivating long-term relationships, conducting site visits, monitoring, evaluating partner programs and accountability, researching applicable global events, and recruiting new partners to work with. Liaisons must exhibit exceptional interpersonal communication, a strong cultural knowledge of the place they are working with, and excellent organizational skills. A strong understanding of issues that exist globally is of utmost importance in this profession as no entity wants to publicly be working with regions or countries committing atrocities simultaneously.
