Former British Ambassador

Alexandra Hall Hall is a former British diplomat with over 30 years of service, including postings to Bangkok, Washington, New Delhi, Bogota and Tbilisi, where she was the British Ambassador from 2013-2016. She spent two years on attachment to the US Department of State from 2002-2004; was head of the UK Foreign Office’s Human Rights Department from 2004-2006; and during periods of unpaid leave from the Foreign Office taught a Human Rights Course at George Washington University in 2008, and was a Senior Non Resident Fellow at the Atlantic Council from 2016-2018. Her most recent assignment was as Brexit Counsellor and spokesperson at the British Embassy in Washington from 2018-2019. She resigned from that position, and from the Foreign Office altogether, in December 2019, after concluding that she could no longer represent the British Government’s position on Brexit with integrity. Since resigning, she has become a frequent commentator and writer on British media outlets about British politics and foreign policy post-Brexit. She is married to Dan Twining, President of the International Republican Institute, and became a US citizen in April this year.
