Alain Le Roy

Alain Le Roy, UN Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, is retiring at the end of August for family reasons.

Mr. Le Roy has been head of UN Peacekeeping for three years.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon thanked Mr. Le Roy for his outstanding service, saying his three year tenure has seen extraordinary challenges in peacekeeping in countries like the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Haiti, Sudan and Côte d'Ivoire.

Mr. Le Roy shared some of those experiences with Ari Gaitanis, starting with the DRC.
