Ambassador Peter Jenkins
Following a distinguished 33-year diplomatic career Peter Jenkins now leads ADRg Ambassadors in the development of its relations with the UN and other important international organisations including the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO). He is a consultant and frequent public commentator on economic issues, especially trade liberalisation and energy security, and on nuclear issues, especially non-proliferation and disarmament, and is also an accredited Mediator.
During his time with the British Diplomatic Service, Peter Jenkins was posted twice to Vienna, and to Washington, Paris, Brazil and Geneva. His last posting was as British Permanent Representative to the IAEA and United Nations in Vienna. In that capacity he contributed to IAEA policy on a number of nuclear non-proliferation issues, and attended the 2005 NPT Review Conference, as well as its preparatory conferences in 2002 and 2003. He was also President of the 2007 IAEA Conference on Illicit Trafficking of Nuclear Materials, and a vice-chairman of the UN Ad Hoc Committee for the negotiation of a UN Convention on Corruption.
In Washington he was Private Secretary to two Ambassadors; in Paris he promoted Franco-British economic and energy ties, and dealt with issues arising from the creation of a European single market; in Brazil he contributed to a strengthening of UK/Brazilian economic and political relations; in Geneva he was the UK's chief resident representative to the World Trade Organisation; and in Vienna his primary focus was on the nuclear aspects of international peace and security, especially the Iranian nuclear issue. He also acquired regional (South America, and South West Asia) and country (France and Iran) expertise, and human resource management experience.
Since leaving the Diplomatic Service he has been senior adviser to the Director of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, and Special Representative for the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership. He is currently a non-executive director of a company that promotes clean energy solutions.
He is an accredited Mediator through ADR Group, a sister company to ADRg Ambassadors.
