You, the People: The United Nations, Transitional Administration, and State-Building

By Simon Chesterman | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

Any research organization depends not only on its staff, but also on those who support it and those who are prepared to speak to it and listen to it. The International Peace Academy (IPA), where this volume was researched and written, is blessed in all three areas.

David M. Malone, President of IPA from 1998 to 2004, was both an inspiring leader and an inspired manager. After playing a central role in developing the research project on Transitional Administration, he encouraged me to find my own voice in this field, providing advice and introductions throughout my research. It has been an honour and a pleasure to work with him. Other colleagues contributed directly or indirectly, through constructive engagement with the subject and participation in the intellectual life of IPA more generally. I am particularly indebted to Sebastian von Einsiedel, who joined IPA in 2002 and rapidly made himself indispensable.

My research was funded by Carnegie Corporation of New York, with additional funding from the Ford Foundation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. I am especially pleased that Vartan Gregorian, President of the Corporation and an authority on Afghanistan in his own right, was able to contribute a foreword to the book. Stephen J. Del Rosso, Jr, also at Carnegie Corporation, was both instrumental in the original conception of the project and flexible in seeing it evolve to embrace Afghanistan and Iraq. To them and all their colleagues at Carnegie, Ford, and MacArthur, warmest thanks.

Most of the interviews conducted in the course of field research were confidential. I am unable to list everyone to whom I spoke, but wish to acknowledge some of those who shared their time and their wisdom with me in New York, Washington, London, Paris, Phnom Penh, Belgrade, Sarajevo, Pristina, Dili, and Kabul: General John Abizaid, Rafeeuddin Ahmed, Ali Alatas, Prime Minister Marí Alkatiri, Jean Arnault, Lloyd Axworthy, Eileen Babbitt, Arsenio Paixão Bano, M. Cherif Bassiouni, Alex Boraine, Lakhdar Brahimi, Ian Brownlie, Youk Chhang, Noam Chomsky, Jarat Chopra, Hans Corell, Vjosa Dobruna, Toby Dodge, Michael Doyle, Gareth Evans, Daan Everts, Nigel Fisher, Joaquim Fonseca, Thomas M. Franck, Peter Galbraith, Ashraf Ghani, Richard Goldstone, Jaque Grinberg, President Xanana Gusmão, Hans Haekkerup, Hurst Hannum,
