As the current Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, prepares to step down at the end of 2016, for the first time in history, candidates competing to be next UN leader will take part in public debates organised by UNA-UK in partnership with the Guardian, Future UN Development System Project (CUNY Graduate Center) and the Embassy of Denmark. This debate, to be held in the Barbican Centre, London, will see candidates going head-to-head, answering questions from members of the public and journalists.
So far the following candidates have declared they will attend:
- António Guterres – Former UN High Commissioner for Refugees and former Prime Minister of Portugal
- Vuk Jeremić – Former Foreign Minister of Serbia and former President of the UN General Assembly (2012-13)
- Igor Lukšić – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of Montenegro
If you can’t be there in person, you can watch it live on www.una.org.uk/live from 7pm.
