Isaac Flattau (’00) served as a fellow in the Center’s International Environmental Legal Assistance Program from June 2001 to November 2002. He played a key role in the successful implementation of the Program’s project to assist governments and environmental groups in Hungary and Slovenia in promoting public access to environmental information and public participation in environmental decision-making. Flattau participated in the day-to-day management of all phases of the project, which included legal support to the Hungarian and Slovenian governments in reforming and strengthening their environmental information access laws, consistent with the standards set by international conventions. He was extensively involved in the research and drafting of project legal materials, as well as financial management and reports to the project funders. He helped plan and participated in several capacity-building and technical assistance workshops and clinics in Central Europe, as well as a New York and Washington, D.C., study tour on U.S. environmental information laws and practices for the Hungarian and Slovenian participants. Following completion of the project and his fellowship, Flattau served as a consultant in the Humanitarian Policy Division of UNICEF and is currently working for the Coalition for the International Criminal Court, responsible for coordinating the activities of the coalition’s members in implementing the Rome Statute for the International Criminal Court through domestic legislation.
