      Gareth Evans is president and CEO of International Crisis Group, a private multinational organization dedicated to field research and international political analysis. As one of Australia's longest serving Foreign Ministers (1988-1996), he is best known for his roles in developing the UN peace plan for Cambodia and founding the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum in 1989. In 1990, he received the award for Australian Humanist of the Year, and in 1994 he was the ANZAC Peace Prize recipient for his work on Cambodia.

       

      In 1995 his Foreign Policy article "Cooperative Security and Intrastate Conflict" earned him the Grawemeyer Prize for Ideas Improving World Order. In September 2000 the Government of Canada appointed him as Co-Chair of the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty, which published its report, The Responsibility to Protect in December 2001. Among other various positions, he is currently a member of the International Advisory Board of UN Studies at Yale and the Advisory Council of the Institute for International Studies at Stanford. In 1994 he was a member of the Carnegie Commission on Preventing Deadly Conflict, co-chaired by Cyrus Vance and David Hamburg. He holds degrees in law from Melbourne University and in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from Oxford.
