CIPS is pleased to announce the appointment of John Mundy as Visiting Associate for the 2012-13 academic year.
Mr. Mundy is a former Canadian diplomat. Before retiring in 2008, he held senior diplomatic appointments in Trinidad and Tobago, Iran and Australia. In 2007, he was appointed Canadian Ambassador to Iran during a very difficult time in bilateral relations. At the end of that year, when attempts to agree upon a reciprocal exchange of Ambassadors between Iran and Canada failed, he was expelled by President Ahmadinejad and diplomatic relations were down-graded. He is now writing a book about his experience. Read more.
