Dr. Noeleen Heyzer: Freedom from Want, Freedom from Fear
Under-Secretary General of the United Nations and Executive Secretary of ESCAP (27 Jan 2011)

About the Talk

Dr. Noeleen Heyzer argues that to survive and thrive, our economies, societies and systems of governance must be built upon a solid foundation of shared values and institutional practices of justice and equality. This is essential if we are to bridge the divides in an increasingly unequal world that can threaten peace and security. In doing so, Heyzer reminds us why the UN exists---for what and for whom. Focusing on the principles of the United Nations and how she applies them in her work, Heyzer shows that leadership matters, that norms and standards are critical and that the UN is today more relevant in our increasingly interdependent world where human destinies are linked.
