H.E. Jean-Francis Regis Zinsou, 1955-2020


Recently, the Diplomatische Akademie Wien – Vienna School of International Studies received with great sorrow the sad news of the sudden passing of H.E. Jean-Francis Regis Zinsou.
With Amb. Zinsou, who had graduated from the DA’s 22nd Diploma Programme in 1987, the DA family has lost a highly esteemed member who will be commemorated for carrying the DA’s values out into the world.
In order to recognise and honour his diplomatic endeavours, the Academy inducted Amb. Zinsou into the DA Alumni Hall of Fame’s Class of 2012.
We extend our heartfelt sympathies to Mr Zinsou’s family and friends.
