Former Perth lawyer Nicholas Grono has secured the position of research director for the International Crisis Group, based in Brussels.
Mr Grono is moving to Brussels to begin the newly created role on July 1, after completing a Master of Public Policy at Princeton University.
Prior to retreating into academia, Mr Grono was chief of staff for the Federal Attorney General for three years.
In Perth in the 1990s, he was a lawyer in the Australian Government Solicitor’s office.
United Nations head Kofi Annan last year described the International Crisis Group as "a global voice of conscience, and a genuine force for peace".
