The German peace activist Reiner Braun is the new International Peace Bureau co-President. The managing director of the German section of Lawyers Against Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Weapons (IALANA), he was elected at the IPB's Triennial Assembly in Stockholm.
Braun's co-President, the former UNESCO Director Ingeborg Breines from Norway, was confirmed in her post, for a further 3 years.
Reiner Braun is also Director of the Federation of German Scientists (VDW). In late August, both VDW and IALANA Germany, together with the anti-corruption organisation Transparency International, jointly awarded the Whistleblower Prize to the former NSA employee Edward Snowden.
