New ERIS Executive Director: 'It's great to be back'

October 2012

ERIS’ new Executive Director – Andrew Bruce – started work on Monday 3 September.  Andrew was formerly with the United Nations Electoral Assistance Division, and before that the Human Rights and Democracy Unit in the European Commission’s External Relations Directorate and the OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights.


Andrew says:
“I began my career at ERIS in 1994, as a Programme Officer.  It is great to be back.
Many things have changed in the last 18 years.  But ERIS has been unswerving in its determination to work as effectively as it can in solidarity with democrats around the world.
I intend to work with colleagues to build on all that is so very good about ERIS, ensure that it continues the progress of recent years and make it even more effective for the years to come”.
