Peace Diplomacy, Global Justice and International Agency

Presentation of the book: Peace Diplomacy, Global Justice and International Agency (Cambridge University Press 2014)

Event details

Date:19 May 2014
Venue:Uppsala university house, Room IX

We invite you to a discussion in the spirit of UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld (1905-1961) who shaped many of the fundamental principles and practices of the United Nations as the most relevant international organisation in terms of global governance and normative frameworks.

We will also take the opportunity to launch a book that both pays tribute to and is a critical review of Hammarskjöld’s values and legacies. Contributions to the volume examine his approach, investigate his visions and explore his achievements and failures.

Some aspects of the ‘Hammarskjöld approach’ are introduced in their relevance for global policy and ethics today, documenting Hammarskjöld’s legacy in its current relevance more than 50 years after his death.
