A distinguished solicitor who has dedicated his life to social and political sciences and promoting culture, Jose Nun is tipped as the next Argentine ambassador in Britain.

Mr. Nun was President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner Secretary of Culture and is identified with the group of intellectuals that back in 2003 supported the Kirchner couple and their renovation ideas for Argentine politics. He left the post following the conflict with farmers that sent shockwaves inside the Kirchners’ bunker.

Dr. Nun, 75, with a long academic career is an honour’s student from the University of Buenos Aires and from the Political Sciences Foundation from the University of Paris. Later he taught political science in the Berkeley campus of the University of California, from 1972 to 1990 at the University of Toronto, Canada and in Flasco, as a social science investigator both in Mexico and Argentina.

Mr. Nun at the Culture Secretary post succeeded Torcuato Di Tella, 79, brother of the former Foreign Affairs minister, Guido Di Tella, who is mentioned as Argentina’s next ambassador in Rome.

According to Buenos Aires press reports both political appointees should be in their posts before the end of the year.

The Argentine legation in London has had no ambassador since 2008 when Federico Mirré retired.
