Presentation Research Agenda for the Extraordinary Chair of United Nations Studies in Peace and Justice
- 20 november 2018
- Wijnhaven Building
2511 DP The Hague
On Tuesday 20 November Professor O’Malley will present the research agenda for the Chair and give a talk entitled: ‘The United Nations, From Blue Helmets to Blue Skies.'
Professor Alanna O’Malley is Chair of United Nations Studies in Peace and Justice, a newly-created position at Leiden University’s Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs. This Chair, in honor of the former Dutch Foreign Minister and Mayor of The Hague Jozias Van Aartsen, is shared with The Hague University of Applied Sciences. The main focus of the Chair will be to create a new interdisciplinary research group on United Nations Studies and to organise a series of academic and public events to mark the 75th anniversary of the UN in 2020.
O'Malley: "I consider this an opportunity to bring together the strong UN community (including academics, practitioners and social organizations) that exists in The Hague around a clear agenda. I hope that this will lead to strong and sustainable partnerships. The UN has an image problem, we have to change it."
Entrance is free, but please register. Afterwards there will be drinks.
