Warren Hoge Named Vice President and Director of External Relations
The International Peace Institute (IPI) announced on April 17th that Warren Hoge, United Nations bureau chief for The New York Times, will be joining IPI in June as Vice President and Director of External Relations.
Mr. Hoge brings to IPI a distinguished career of more than three decades as an editor and foreign correspondent at The New York Times. In addition to his current position as UN bureau chief, he has served as bureau chief in Rio de Janeiro and London, foreign editor, editor of The New York Times Magazine, and assistant managing editor. As a foreign correspondent, Mr. Hoge has reported from more than 80 countries—covering political turmoil and guerrilla warfare in Central America, the passage of countries from dictatorship to elective government in South America, the peace process in Northern Ireland, British politics, and areas high on the UN’s peace and security agenda, including Central Africa and the Middle East.
When he joins IPI in mid-June, Mr. Hoge will direct communications, publicity, and the promotion of programs, meetings, publications, and events as the organization seeks to expand its global presence and raise its profile as a leading contributor to peace and security studies. President Rød-Larsen expressed his high regard for Mr. Hoge and the extraordinary promise of his appointment: “As IPI’s work grows in scope and reach, no one is better suited than Warren Hoge to lead our communications and media efforts in the coming years. It is my great privilege to welcome him aboard.”
