UK Consul General to speak at BYU March 25

Dame Barbara Hay, Consul General of the United Kingdom based in Los Angeles, will discuss U.S.-U.K. relations during a lecture Thursday, March 25, at 10 a.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building on the Brigham Young University campus.

Hay was appointed consul general of the UK in the U.S. last July. Hay was previously posted in the same position to Istanbul, where she arrived in early 2004 to lead the rebuilding of the post following the tragic terrorist attack in November 2003 in which 12 colleagues were killed and scores injured.

Since beginning her diplomatic career in 1971, Hay has spent much of her time in the former Soviet Union, serving there five times in all; served as ambassador to Uzbekistan and, concurrently, Tajikistan; and worked in both South Africa and Canada, as well as in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London.

Her posts have attracted a wide range of visitors, including members of the Royal Family, Lord Mayors of London, Ministers, parliamentarians, senior businessmen, cultural figures, academics, etc. She expects—and is looking forward to—a similar pattern and pace in Los Angeles.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on events sponsored by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
