New Board Members for International Crisis Group Print

Brussels, 29 June 2006

The International Crisis Group is pleased to announce that eight new members will join Crisis Group’s Board of Trustees from 1 July 2006, following their election at the Board meeting held in Brussels in April:

Shlomo Ben-Ami  Foreign Minister of Israel (2000-2001)

Lakhdar Brahimi Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General (2004-2005), Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan (2001-2004), Minister for Foreign Affairs of Algeria (1991-1993)

Naresh Chandra  Indian Cabinet Secretary (1990-1992), Ambassador to the United States (1996-2001)

Joaquim Alberto Chissano President of Mozambique (1986-2005), Chairman of the African Union (2003-2004)

Joschka Fischer  Minister of Foreign Affairs and Vice-Chancellor of Germany from 1998 to 2005

Anwar Ibrahim  Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia (1993-1998)

Nancy Kassebaum Baker Republican member of United States Senate (1979-1997)

Ricardo Lagos  President of Chile (2000- 2006), President of Club of Madrid (2006-)

The newly constituted 46-member Board (full list attached) includes eighteen members from North and South America, fourteen from Western and Eastern Europe, seven from Africa and the Middle East and seven from Asia and Australasia: it meets twice a year.   Eighteen present Board members are retiring on 30 June after two or more years of distinguished service, and most will continue their association with Crisis Group as Senior Advisers or members of the International Advisory Council.

Crisis Group President Gareth Evans said, “Crisis Group continues to have one of the strongest boards of any non-governmental organisation in the world, and our new members will contribute an even more extraordinary range of expertise and experience.”

Crisis Group, with nearly 120 full-time staff members on five continents, works through field-based analysis and high-level advocacy to prevent and resolve deadly conflict. Its approach is grounded in field research, with teams of political analysts located within or close by countries at risk of outbreak, escalation or recurrence of violent conflict. Based on information and assessments from the field, Crisis Group produces regular analytical reports containing practical recommendations targeted at key international decision-takers.
