From the reviews:
“‘A practical guide to the best diplomatic and negotiation practices needed to convince governments and international institutions to effectively protect animals, which also introduces new approaches to fund-raising’ … . on finishing the book, I was left with the impression of having had a number of personal conversations with a very interesting author covering his unique, wide-ranging experiences, and being able to take several ideas and practical tips to blend with other sources for furthering high-level international animal welfare policy.” (Joy Pritchard, Animal Welfare, Vol. 21 (4), November, 2012)
From the Back Cover
Diplomacy, Funding and Animal Welfare is a practical guide to the best diplomatic and negotiation practices needed to convince governments and international institutions to effectively protect animals, which also introduces new approaches to fundraising. Animal protection advocates are prepared for speaking to diplomats and government officials in any setting, and to combatants in war zones. The book mainly focuses on approaching local and national governments, the United Nations system, the international Red Cross movement and systems related to other international organizations that can help animals, often in surprising ways.
The reader will learn the rules of “diplomatic protocol", and much about the rules and procedures of major international bodies. To provide balance and real world relevance, the guide draws on a compilation of the author’s extensive activities across a range of development, animal welfare, emergency management and climate issues in government and in the NGO world, as well as interviews with scholars and officials from NGOs, diplomatic missions, the United Nations, the Red Cross, governments and corporations.
