Council congratulates Martti Ahtisaari on receiving the Nobel Peace Prize

10 Oct 08

Members of the European Council on Foreign Relations - almost one hundred politicians, intellectuals, artists and business leaders - congratulated Martti Ahtisaari on receiving the Nobel Peace Prize today.

Following decades of achievement in conflict resolution and a 6-year tenure as Finland's president, Mr Ahtisaari was instrumental in launching the European Council on Foreign Relations in October 2007. He is currently a member of ECFR's Board and one of the organisation's three co-chairs.

"It's wonderful to see that President Ahtisaari's long-standing commitment to peace and practical work in solving many of the world's most intractable conflicts has been recognised. We congratulate him on the honour," said ECFR's Executive Director, Mark Leonard.
