The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has appointed a new board for NOREF. The new chair is former Ambassador Kim Traavik.
Thomas Hegghammer, Kristin Lund, Kate Hansen Bundt, Øyvind Nordsletten and Katja S. Cappelen all continue on the board for another term.
“Bård Glad Pedersen has steered NOREF through a period of substantial growth in many respects”, says NOREF director Dag Nylander. “During his two terms he has provided direction to strategic recruitment and decisions that have been instrumental to the development of the operational center for conflict diplomacy that NOREF is today. We are very grateful for his efforts”, says Nylander. “At the same time it is a great pleasure to welcome the new chair, Kim Traavik. His vast experience from international diplomacy and politics makes him uniquely well placed to give direction to the work ahead of us. I very much look forward to engaging with him and to the continued good cooperation with the entire board”, says Nylander.
The MFA appoints NOREF’s board for two-year terms. See the announcement on MFA’s website.
