IPI SRSG Series: Pierre Schori

IPI hosted the latest event in our recently launched "SRSG Series." This event, entitled "Côte d'Ivoire at a Crossroads," featured Mr. Pierre Schori, the recently appointed Head of the United Nations Operation in Côte d'Ivoire.
Before assuming his post as SRSG in 2005, Pierre Schori had a distinguished career in politics, diplomacy, and academia. In Sweden, Mr. Schori served as a Member of Parliament (1991-1994); Minister for International Development Cooperation; Deputy Minister for Cooperation with Central and Eastern Europe (1994-1996); Minister for International Development Cooperation, Migration and Asylum Policy and Deputy Foreign Minister (1996-1999). Subsequently, Mr. Schori served as a Member of the European Parliament (1999-2000) and as the Permanent Representative of Sweden to the United Nations (2000-2004). Before being nominated as SRSG, Pierre Schori was a Distinguished Visiting Professor at Adelphi University in New York. Mr. Schori has authored several books and articles on the United Nations, security policy, Africa, and Latin America.
