Section Award Honors McDaniel for Work in Kosovo

Robert E. McDaniel, deputy head of legal affairs for the Kosovo Mission of the Office of Security and Cooperation in Europe, was recently named the 2012 Daniel Webster International Lawyer of the Year for 2012 by the NH Bar International Law Section.

McDaniel, who was in the US for a short time last month, received the award from outgoing section chair Lawrence D.W. Graves during a section meeting at the Bar Center on Nov. 27. The award recognized McDaniel’s "dedicated and selfless work over the past three years in the Republic of Kosovo to strengthen the rule of law and build a foundation for international development efforts."

McDaniel, of Meredith, made remarks about the complexity of the Balkan region, explaining that diversity and boundaries related to language, religion, culture, and ethnicity contributed to an "astonishingly complex social network." It remains to be understood whether the legacy of the Balkans will be ethnic and cultural divisiveness and violence or tolerance and harmony, McDaniel said.

McDaniel’s role with the peacekeeping OSCE has been to encourage communication and international business, which helps reduce and prevent violence.

"As long as you keep them talking, they’re not loading weapons and shooting each other," he said.

If you are in doubt about the status of any meeting, please call the Bar Center at 603-224-6942 before you head out.
