PassBlue: "Angela Kane is Leaving the UN in a Political Shuffle"

11 March 2015

The UN's High Representative for Disarmament, Angela Kane, has announced that she will be stepping down early this summer.   In a new article on PassBlue, Barbara Crossette reports on rumors about the reasons for Kane's departure:

"Reports are circulating around the UN that Kane, one of the few high-ranking women in peace and security, was being moved from her position to accommodate an aide to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who will be out of a job when Ban’s second term ends in 2016."
