International Crisis Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Stephen J. Hadley to its Board of Trustees. The 46-member Board plays a key role in promoting Crisis Group’s mission of preventing, resolving and mitigating the impact of the world’s deadly conflicts.
Hadley, Assistant for National Security Affairs to former President George W. Bush, will take his place as a Crisis Group Trustee on 1 August.
“Our Board of Trustees, whose members come from across the globe and bring a diversity of perspectives, will be further strengthened by Stephen Hadley’s participation”, said Crisis Group’s President & CEO Robert Malley. “With his experience dealing with multiple national security issues and global crises at the highest levels of government, he will enrich our organisation’s expertise.”
Hadley also served as the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy where he represented the Department of Defense on arms control matters. Previously, as President Bush’s Deputy National Security Adviser, he specialised in U.S. relations with Russia, the Israeli disengagement from Gaza, ballistic missile defense, and developing a strategic relationship with India.
“The range of Mr. Hadley’s expertise is extraordinary and we look forward to his strategic contribution to our work on 55 conflicts and crises,” said Lord (Mark) Malloch-Brown, Crisis Group’s Chair of the Board of Trustees. “Mr. Hadley’s decision to join the Board is a testament to the organisation’s reputation among policymakers and officials around the world.”
