Nossel, who most recently served at the State Department as deputy assistant secretary for international organizations, will assume her new role at AIUSA in January. In the meantime, she is working as a visiting senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. A long time human rights lawyer and activist, Nossel's portfolio at State included multilateral human rights, humanitarian affairs, women's issues, and public diplomacy.
