Stéphane Dujarric de la Rivière, Spokesman for António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, will be our next speaker.
He was formerly spokesman for the previous Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and earlier for Secretary-General Kofi Anon.
During his time as Spokesman, he conducted daily briefings for the UN press corps and faced questions on a number of crises, notably the Oil-for-Food scandal and the Israel-Lebanon conflict.
Prior to his current appointment, Dujarric was Director of News and Media for the United Nations Department of Public Information. In this role, he oversaw the UN's television, radio and photo operations. He coordinates the work of the main United Nations news sites, operating in eight languages.
Before joining the United Nations, he worked for ABC News television for close to ten years in various capacities in the network's New York City, London and Paris offices. He traveled extensively on assignment to cover major stories throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Born in France, Dujarric, has been living in the United States for the most part of the last 40 years. He is a graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.
