Ambassador Nabil Fahmy, founding dean of the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy (GAPP) at AUC, will serve as Egypt’s foreign minister in the interim government of Prime Minister Hazem El Beblawi. Fahmy, who will be on public service leave from AUC, has headed GAPP since its establishment in 2009 after a remarkable career serving Egypt’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in numerous posts.
"We are delighted that Ambassador Nabil Fahmy will be serving in this important post," said AUC President Lisa Anderson. "Dean Fahmy is not only the founding dean of our School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, but is also a distinguished AUC alumnus, with an impeccable record of service to Egypt. Under his able leadership, GAPP has, in a short span of time, become the region's leading public policy school at a moment where professional civil servants in the fields of public administration, public policy, law and journalism are in great demand in both government and NGOs in Egypt and the region."Click here for full media coverage
