Michèle Griffin Policy Planning Unit Director, United Nations

Ambassador Shin Dong-ik
Michèle Griffin is acting Director of the Policy and Planning Unit and Chief of the Policy Committee Secretariat in the Secretary-General's office (EOSG) at the United Nations. In this capacity, she supports the Secretary-General and the Deputy Secretary-General in taking key policy decisions through the Policy Committee (PC), which is the UN equivalent of a cabinet. The Committee considers thematic, country-specific and emerging issues requiring strategic guidance and policy decisions.
Prior to serving in EOSG, Ms. Griffin served for ten years in the Department of Political Affairs (DPA), where she advised the Under-Secretary-General on cross-cutting policy matters. From 2005-8, she set up and ran the Mediation Support Unit in DPA, launching a ground-breaking Standby Team of Mediation Experts and supporting mediators and Special Envoys engaged in peace processes in Central African Republic; Darfur; Equatorial Guinea/Gabon; Iraq; Kenya; Myanmar; Northern Uganda; the Sahel region; Somalia; the Maldives; and Western Sahara. Prior to joining DPA in early 2001, she worked for several years with the nascent Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery in UNDP.
Throughout her years at the UN, Ms. Griffin has played a role in several key UN reform initiatives, including the decisions resulting from the 2005 World Summit, the 2000 Brahimi report on peacekeeping and the development of UNDP policy and practice on crisis prevention and recovery. She also served for several years as an adjunct Professor at Columbia University, where she taught courses on peacebuilding and the work of the UN Security Council, and has published and lectured widely on UN matters over the years. She is married with two children.
