Mr Perrin declares: “The collaboration between the City of Turin and the ILO Turin Centre has always been intense. I will ensure that such a fruitful collaboration, which began more than 50 years ago, continues to grow, in particular through various projects that I would like to develop with the local community. In the years to come, we will build together a solid collaboration based on the foresight and generosity of the main ideal of those - public, private, local and national institutions - who have strongly supported the creation of a UN Campus in Turin. I strongly believe that this Campus is an integral part of the city and I am confident that we will continue to strengthen our cooperation. At a time when geopolitical tensions are intensifying all over the world, more than ever we need tools for dialogue, mutual listening and exchange. With the continuing support of the ILO tripartite Constituents and of the Italian Authorities, the Turin Centre will remain an important instrument for the promotion of peace through the pursuit of social justice and dialogue”.

We are delighted to welcome him to the Centre

and wish him a successful career in Turin!
