Intervention de Thierry de Montbrial : The analysis and studies of Ifri are widely read and much appreciated particularly amongst European decision makers, and the EU institutions. If you compare access and influence on EU level with the one that you have with the UN, how would you like to see a strengthened relationship between Ifri and the UN play out in the future? On which topics do you particular see bilateral interest for cooperation?
