Political orientation[edit]

As with many other Wikipedia articles on influential political figures, this article contains no useful information on the political orientation of its subject.

After Russia annexed Crimea in response to aggressive actions by the US, the EU, and other NATO powers in Ukraine, Ivo Daalder commented, in a BBC interview, that Russia should be more careful in the future before intervening in the internal affairs of a sovereign nation.

Clearly, Ivo Daalder is an extreme advocate of US domination and NATO expansion. As such, he is a dangerous player on the world political stage and it is essential for an article like this to contain the relevant background information. ---Dagme (talk) 20:45, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Council on Global Affairs Edit[edit]

I work under Ivo Daalder at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. Before I go any further I'd like to declare my conflict of interest for this page as one of his employees.

I recently learned that someone at our organization edited this page without declaring a conflict of interest. I apologize for the oversight, and I promise we don't want that to happen again.

The edit in question added information about Daalder's current role at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. The paragraph was not neutral. In addition to flagging the conflict of interest and apologizing for the mistake, I think a more neutral re-write is in order. I have a proposed a new version below, but I leave it to you all to make the edit as you see fit.

ORIGINAL: In July of 2013, Daalder became President of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs – an independent, nonpartisan think tank that convenes leading global voices, conducts independent research, and engages the public to provide insights and influence the public discourse on critical global issues. Under Daalder, the Council has extended the reach and relevance of its global work by increasing its roster of experts and portfolio of issues; extending the Council’s historic platform for global leaders to engage the public; building a global audience by connecting through digital and social media channels; revitalizing the Council’s brand; and growing its financial, foundation, and membership support. Daalder also conceived and spearheaded the 2015 Chicago Forum on Global Cities, a now annual conference in partnership with the Financial Times that convenes leaders and delegates from around the world for a cross-sector exploration of the influence and impact of global cities in shaping the world's future. Following this rapid growth, the Council was ranked the top "Think Tank to Watch" by the University of Pennsylvania's 2015 Global Go To Think Tank Index.

SUGGESTED UPDATE: In July of 2013, Daalder became President of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.[1] In 2015, the Council was ranked the No. 1 "Think Tank to Watch" by the University of Pennsylvania's 2015 Global Go To Think Tank Index.[2]

Updated Photo[edit]

This is Evan again, working under Ivo Daalder at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, declaring my conflict of interest and suggesting another edit for you all to review.

We have an updated photo of Ivo that we are happy to let this page use it, if desirable. I understand it might more sense to keep the U.S. State Dept. Photo. Just offering this in case it's helpful. I have uploaded it here:
