What Makes A Good UN Secretary-General?
When Norwegian Trygve Halvdan Lie went to New York to become the first UN Secretary-General in 1946. expectations were low. The UN’s founders saw the job as essentially bureaucratic, to be filled by a “good chap” who would run the place smoothly. But this role has changed significantly over time. “Without any loss of responsibilities, other responsibilities have crept in — among which, one could describe as acting as the world’s conscience.” says Professor Adam Roberts, the leading academic expert on the UN. Prof Roberts believes this role began with Dag Hammarskjöld, the second Secretary-General, who led the organisation during the most intense times of the Cold War. in the 1950s and early 1960s.
Finding the role intensely frustrating — he upset the Soviet Union so much that Nikita Khrushchev called for the role to be abolished — Hammarskjöld found himself thinking of things the UN could try and do. In particular, Roberts credits him with playing a “very creative role” in assisting the development of UN peacekeeping. But the end of the Cold War changed everything — or at least it seemed at the time. The UN Security Council found itself ready to fulfil its founding ideals. Following action taken against Iraq for invading Kuwait in 1991, the UN soon found it was engaged in peacekeeping missions around the globe. But Sir Marrack Goulding, one of the top officials during the time, says it was a period of missed opportunities. “The member states did not respond to the demand created by the end of the Cold War. and we were incredibly stretched.” he recalls. “We didn’t get the staff we needed, and as a result some pretty awful disasters took place — in Bosnia. Somalia. Rwanda.”
