December 15, 2010:
Ambassador Richard Holbrooke left us... Without notice as everything in his life ! The Crans Montana Forum will miss him. He used to attend our Forums, especially when he was in charge of the Balkans issue. Our Chairman & Founder Amb. Jean-Paul Carteron worked with him to reach this key international accord - see on picture on our homepage -. Indeed the same year, the Forum organized a special meeting in Malta, gathering all Heads of State duly concerned by Bosnia-Herzegovina. Later the two men met again in Cyprus as Richard Holbrooke was the Special Presidential Emissary in charge of the Island. On the occasion of the 22nd yearly session of the Crans Montana Forum in June 2011, Amb. R. Holbrooke will be posthumously awarded with the PRIX DE LA FONDATION.
