EUCLID congratulates Collen Kelapile

EUCLID congratulates long-time faculty member and friend Collen Kelapile who was recently elected 77th President of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

From a recent interview:

What will be your next vocation post diplomatic work?

Ambassador Kelapile: A very important retirement planning question, which we sometimes take for granted and even forget. I would not be a typical Motswana if my answer did not include commercial farming which I had already started when I was based in Addis Ababa. I have done quite a bit of official traveling mostly, but I still wish to continue exploring some places around the world at my own leisure. Importantly, I will take a moment in my early bit of post-diplomatic life to document my multilateral diplomatic experience in the form of Memoirs and other research papers to benefit other aspiring and serving diplomats. In fact, I am at the moment affiliated with an Intergovernmental University known as EUCLID, where I am doing some online courses and based on my work experience I serve in their faculty (pro bono) as an Adjunct Instructor on International Relations, as the lead tutor on the course relating to the United Nations. Finally, I want to believe that post-diplomatic work as representative of government I should still have residual fire in the belly to contribute further in any available roles at the United Nations.
