We were asked to present the country’s case to the international organization and develop counterarguments to concerns raised by members and other stakeholders.
We presented the country’s case to the international organization’s general assembly and acted as a facilitator to help it address concerns and respond to requests for clarifications. This involved a high-level delegation’s visit to the country to reset relations between the international organization and the country. The goal of the rapprochement was to make the case that inclusion of and engagement with the country was better than exclusion.
We supported the engagement of the country with swing voters and undecided countries to clearly show the benefits the country’s membership in the international organization would convey. In particular, membership would allow more direct future engagement at the highest levels of government to promote gradual, dialogue-based change and avoid isolation that could entrench the status quo.
The renewed relationship between the international organization and the applicant country enabled it to successfully attain membership in the international organization. The reset dialogue has also led to a multilateral technical assistance partnership to address the concerns which had previously prevented the country’s membership in the international organization.
Membership has integrated a strategic economic sector in this country into the world economy resulting in expanded opportunities for trade and foreign investment. The country has also used membership to engage in highly sensitive discussions at the highest levels of government surrounding sociocultural development with the support of global peers. As this country undergoes an unprecedented socio-cultural transformation, reintegration has provided an impetus for change which would have not been possible if the international organization continued its historical policy of isolation.
