Michael von der Schulenburg

Michael von der Schulenburg escaped communist rule, studied in Berlin, London and Paris and worked for the United Nations, and shortly the OSCE, including as UN Assistant Secretary-General, in many of the world's trouble spots, such as in Haiti, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, the Balkan, Somalia, Sierra Leone and the Sahel. Many issues that are raised in On Building Peace are heavily influenced by his unique first-hand experiences.
