Annan and the United Nations were the co-recipients of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize "for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world." Kofi Annan is the Chairman of The Elders, a group founded by Nelson Mandela. Between February and August 2012, Annan was the UN–Arab League Joint Special Representative for Syria, helping find a resolution to ongoing conflict there. Annan quit after becoming frustrated with the UN's lack of progress with regard to resolving the conflict, stating "…when the Syrian people desperately need action, there continues to be finger-pointing and name-calling in the Security Council."
