The excellent Emily Stanger has gone to work for the Ministry of Gender in Liberia. Emily, please make sure you post regularly - your fans around the world will appreciate it!
Emily is working as a Scott Fellow (with support from the Nike Foundation), part of a scheme to bring young professionals (many of them Liberian) to work in the government there for a year, sometimes more. This seems to me is the right kind of technical assistance - not just a few months of consulting (something I have done in the past, but I have decided to steer clear of for a while!), but serious engagement, for a serious period of time. I wish her and the other Scott Fellows the best of luck.
