I am a senior diplomat and international crisis management expert from The Netherlands. My most recent mission was as International Civilian Representative for Kosovo 2008 - 2012, where I had wide-ranging authority based on a settlement proposed by Nobel Laureate Martti Ahtisaari to oversee and assist Kosovo developing as a modern, multi-ethnic democracy with an open market economy.
My recent career includes heading the EU-led ACEH Monitoring Mission (AMM) in Indonesia in 2005 - 2006, the EU Expert Team for Iraq in 2005, and high-level postings with NATO in the Balkans in 1995 - 2001.
In 2014 I joined the European Institute of Peace at Brussels as a Senior Diplomatic Advisor.
