Kwasniewski Out?

Despite rumored U.S interest in his unannounced candidacy, former President Aleksander Kwasniewski is likely out of the race for UNSG, given his new role at Georgetown University beginning this spring.

Former President of Poland (1995-2005) Aleksander Kwasniewski was today appointed Distinguished Scholar in the Practice of Global Leadership at Georgetown University where he will teach students in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service about contemporary European politics, the trans-Atlantic relationship, and democratization in Central and Eastern Europe.

Kwasniewski had indicated last spring that his interest in the position hinged on the United Nations having undergone reforms, a challenge which continues to elude the world body. This concern, his new position and the strong likelihood of a Russian and Chinese veto suggests he may have bowed out of the race.

Update: Kwasniewski will be delivering a lecture at Georgetown’s Bunn Intercultural Center Auditorium on Tuesday, March 21st on “Taking the Chance: the Road of Central and Eastern Europe to Security, Integration and International Engagement,” starting at 1:30pm. Additional information is available here.

    I’m a Georgetown student, so I’ve heard a bit about Kwasniewski’s appointment. Actually, Pres. Kwasniewski will only be on the Georgetown campus for a couple of weeks every semester, so this doesn’t really rule out anything in the future – in fact I’ve heard Kwasniewski wants to do this to increase his credibility in Washington.

    Though that may be true, Kwasniewski doesn’t need to increase his credibility in Washington. He was rumored to already be on the U.S. short list for UNSG candidates. Now, if he was appointed to teach at Moscow State University or Beijing University, that would be a different story…
