The Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation is proud to present this year’s lecturer H.E. Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations.


The annual Dag Hammarskjöld Lecture is given in memory of Dag Hammarskjöld, and in recognition of the values that inspired him personally and as Secretary-General – compassion, humanism and commitment to international solidarity and cooperation.

We are honoured to have H.E. Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, as this year’s lecturer. The title of the lecture is “Evolving threats, timeless values: the United Nations in a changing global landscape”.

The event will be held at Stockholm City Hall on Wednesday 30 March at 6pm. Attendance is by invitation only but the lecture will be livestreamed and you can watch it here. The event is jointly hosted by the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation and Uppsala University.
