What makes up a General Assembly High-Level Week (HLW)? Is it just the delegates and representatives sitting in the General Assembly hall and the Statements by the Heads of State? For those of us who have experienced and dare I say, survived a General Assembly HLW, there is a lot that comes with it. It includes months of long preparation, the many logistical arrangements, Secretariat staff, snipers on the Secretariat building, sniffer dogs, long security lines at various UN entrances, NYPD officers in their numbers, the not-so-secret secret service protecting the dignitaries, traffic jams and street closures and of course the Heads of State, High-Level dignitaries and representatives from Capital. Oh, and did I mention the numerous, countless hours of work and very little sleep? Yes, these and much more, are all the things that make up a General Assembly High-Level Week.
