First insider appointed to the AB

The DSB appointed on the 19th two new AB members. One is Prof. Peter Van den Bossche, currently teaching Law at Maastricht University. When he assumes the office in December, he will be the first AB Member who has worked inside the AB Secretariat before - he was Counsellor and at one time Acting Director of the AB Secretariat from 1997 to 2001. It would be interesting to see whether his prior experience at the ABS would have any impact on his jurisprudence as an AB Member.
