Stefan Feller appointed chief police adviser to UN Secretary-General


ZIF congratulates Stefan Feller on his appointment as UN Police Adviser. He will head the UN Police Division within the Department of Peacekeeping Operations. He will be responsible for advising the UN Secretary-General on basic issues regarding the deployment of police officers as part of peacekeeping missions.

From 2000 to 2004 he served in the United Nations Interim Administration Mission (UNMIK) in Kosovo, initially as Deputy Police Commissioner and then as Police Commissioner, in charge of the police component. From 2004 to 2008 he was the Head of the Police Unit in the Council of the European Union. From November 2008 until July 2012 he was Head of the European Union Police Mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina (EUPM).

ZIF works in close cooperation with Stefan Feller - as part of its 'comprehensive approach'. In June 2012, he gave a presentation on the successful transition of the EUPM mission at a ZIF After Work Briefing and he participated as a panelist in the ZIF-IPI-Pearson Being A Peacekeeper Regional Roundtable in October 2012, discussing European contributions to UN Police.

ZIF is looking forward to future cooperation and wishes Stefan Feller all the best for his new tasks!
