ICRC appoints members of collegial Directorate
30-06-1998 Article, International Review of the Red Cross, No. 323
At its meeting on 28 May 1998, the Assembly of the International Committee of the Red Cross appointed Paul Grossrieder to the newly created post of Director-General.
The Assembly further appointed Dr Jacques Stroun as Director of Human Resources and Finance, and confirmed Yves Sandoz and Jean-Daniel Tauxe in their positions as heads of the Directorate of International Law and Communication and of the Directorate of Operations respectively.
The nomination of the four members of the ICRC’s collegial Directorate comes as a result of the reorganization of the institution’s internal structure, as provided for in the plan of action adopted by the Assembly in late April 1998 within the framework of the major study on the future of the ICRC (see IRRC , March 1998, No. 322, pp. 126-136).
The Directorate will take over on 1 September 1998 at the latest.
