Elliott Statement on Telecom Italia

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 aprile 2019

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited (“Elliott”) welcomes Vivendi’s decision to withdraw its request to shareholders to revoke five of Telecom Italia’s (“TIM”) Directors, a clear sign that Vivendi understands that there is broad support for TIM’s existing independent Board. This outcome is a victory for the Company and paves the way for stability and sustained value creation for all of TIM’s stakeholders. Elliott remains fully supportive of CEO Luigi Gubitosi, the Company’s management team and the existing independent Board, and looks forward to constructive dialogue with all stakeholders to pursue a value maximising path forward for the Company.
Elliott Management Corporation manages two multi-strategy funds which combined have approximately $34 billion of assets under management. Its flagship fund, Elliott Associates, L.P., was founded in 1977, making it one of the oldest funds of its kind under continuous management. The Elliott funds’ investors include pension plans, sovereign wealth funds, endowments, foundations, funds-of-funds, and employees of the firm.

Making handbook for peace

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 10 settembre 2011

Geneva /New York: Interpeace launches the handbook: ‘Constitution-making and reform: Options for the Process’ a comprehensive resource for national constitution-makers and their advisors. Over 150 new constitutions have been created since 1975, and as many as 20 national constitutions are reformed or adopted each year. Recent months and the ‘Arab Spring’ have proven that this development continues. This year alone, constitutional reforms have been, or are, on the agenda in Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco, Nepal, Southern Sudan, Zimbabwe and now Libya. A modern constitution needs to be legitimate in the eyes of the people, but achieving this is a challenge. Often national and international constitution-makers feel out in the cold as there has been no comprehensive resource on the options for constitution-making and reform. The design, implementation and management of these processes, in an inclusive way, create the foundations for lasting peace. The stakes are high. If the process goes wrong the seeds of future conflict and violence will be sown. Interpeace, an international peacebuilding organization, is now filling this critical gap.
Held at the United Nations (UN) in New York, H.E. Mr. Joseph Deiss, President of the UN General Assembly is providing the opening remarks. His Royal Highness Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al-Hussein of Jordan, Permanent Representative of Jordan to the UN and Chair of the Peacebuilding Commission Country Configuration for Liberia, will moderate a panel discussion. He will be joined by Jean-Marie Guéhenno, Director of the Center for International Conflict Resolution, SIPA, and former Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations; Nicholas Haysom, Director of Political Affairs, Executive Office of the UN Secretary-General; Jamal Benomar, UN Special Advisor and Envoy for Yemen and former Director of the UN Rule of Law Unit; and Michele Brandt, co-author of ‘Constitution-making and Reform: Options for the Process’.
Four respected experts from the constitution-making domain, Michele Brandt, Director of Interpeace’s ‘Constitution-making for Peace’ initiative, Jill Cottrell, Yash Ghai, and Anthony Regan, have united to create this ‘how to guide’ for constitution-makers around the world.
The handbook provides practical guidance on how to design transparent, nationally led and owned processes that are also participatory and inclusive. The handbook will be available on line for all to access from the 9th September at 9am EST on http://www.interpeace.org
