Global Forum guest speaker Cameron Munter is a career American diplomat who, as The Daily Beast once described him, “is no stranger to geopolitical hot spots.”

His most recent diplomatic challenge was serving as the U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan (2010-2012). He’s currently president of The EastWest Institute.

While Ambassador to Pakistan, his Institute biography says, Munter “guided U.S.-Pakistani relations through a strained period, including the operation against Osama bin Laden.”

Prior to his Pakistan posting, Munter served as Ambassador to Serbia “where he negotiated Serbian domestic consensus for European integration and managed the Kosovo independence crisis.”

After leaving public service, he taught at the university level, then, in 2015, became CEO and president of The EastWest Institute, the non-government organization that “works to reduce international conflict, addressing seemingly intractable problems that threaten world security and stability.” Founded in 1980, the Institute maintains offices in New York, Brussels, Moscow, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Munter explained that he took the Pakistan ambassadorship at the urging of renowned American diplomat Richard Holbrook who was the Obama Administration’s special adviser on Pakistan and Afghanistan when he died in 2010.

Other notes on Munter’s diplomatic resume include service at the U.S. Embassy in Bagdad and “overseeing U.S. civilian and military cooperation in planning the drawdown of U.S. troops.” His European assignments included posts in the Czech Republic and Poland. He also was a director of the White House’s National Security Council.
