Ambassador Sipiläinen looks back on more than 33 years of experience working in European Foreign Policy. Prior to her ambassadorship in Germany, Anne Sipiläinen was Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Security Policy at the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs.  

Finland is a founding member of the CoE and was the first member to second a high-profile specialist to the Centre in Berlin.
