Sir Ivor Roberts KCMG was sworn in as the twenty-seventh President of Trinity on 20th September 2006 having retired two days earlier from Rome after a thirty-eight year diplomatic career culminating in three Ambassadorial appointments in what was then called Yugoslavia, Ireland and Italy.  He had previously served in Lebanon, France , Luxembourg, Australia, Vanuatu and Spain.  His valedictory dispatch from Rome led to the practice of such widely distributed documents being henceforth banned.  He is working on two books: one on the Balkans (and on Milošević in particular), the other on the theory and practice of diplomacy which he hopes will not be placed on the Index.  He is a member of the Council of the British School of Archaeology, History and Fine Arts at Rome, a Patron of the Venice in Peril Fund, an honorary Fellow of Keble College and has spent a year as a Senior Associate Member of St Antony’s Colege.
