An independent diplomat: Carne Ross on

After 15 years in the British diplomatic corps, Carne Ross became a “freelance diplomat,” running a bold nonprofit that gives small, developing and yet-unrecognized nations a voice in international relations. At the BIF-5 conference, he calls for a new kind of diplomacy that gives voice to small countries, that works with changing boundaries and that welcomes innovation.(Recorded at BIF-5, October 2009 in Providence, Rhode Island. Duration: 20:38)
