Position at the International Olympic Committee for the former UN Secretary General

Former United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has been proposed as the new chairman of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Ethics Commission. He is expected to replace Senegal's Youssoupha Ndiaye when his term ends during the IOC Session in Lima from 13 September 2017. This proposal, made by the IOC's ruling Executive Board, must be approved by the full membership during the upcoming meeting.

Ban served as the eighth official UN Secretary-General from January 2007 until December last year. He developed an increasingly close relationship with IOC President Thomas Bach during the last three years and oversaw the inclusion of "sport as an important enabler" in the organisation's sustainable development goals.
