About Dominique Gaston André Strauss-Kahn

Dominique Gaston André Strauss-Kahn born 25 April 1949), often referred to in the media, and by himself, as DSK, is a French economist, lawyer, politician, and member of the French Socialist Party (PS).

Strauss-Kahn became the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on 28 September 2007, with the backing of his country's president, Nicolas Sarkozy, and served in that role until his resignation on 18 May 2011.

He was a professor of economics at the Paris Institute for Political Studies ("Sciences Po") and was Minister of Economy and Finance from 1997 to 1999 as part of Lionel Jospin's "Plural Left" government.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn was born in the wealthy Paris suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine, Hauts-de-Seine. He is the son of lawyer Gilbert Strauss-Kahn, who specialised in tax law, and journalist Jacqueline Fellus.

Strauss-Kahn's father was born to an Alsatian Jewish father and a Catholic mother from Lorraine; Strauss-Kahn's mother is from a Sephardic Jewish family in Tunisia. The family settled in Agadir, Morocco, in 1951, but after the 1960 earthquake moved to Monaco, where his father had a legal practice. While the family was living in Monaco, Strauss-Kahn went to school at the Lycee Albert 1er. The family later returned to Paris.
