The UN secretary-general and moral authority ethics and religion in international leadership by Kent J Kille( file )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,246 libraries worldwide
"Once described by Trygve Lie as the "most impossible job on earth," the position of UN secretary-general is as frustratingly constrained as it is prestigious. The secretary-general's ability to influence global affairs often depends on how the international community regards his moral authority." "In The UN Secretary-General and Moral Authority, contributors provide case studies of all seven former secretaries-general, establishing a much-needed comparative survey of each office-holder's personal religious and moral values. These influences - as diverse as Lutheranism, Catholicism, Buddhism, and Coptic Christianity - guided these individuals as they sought to maintain international peace and security and promote human rights. From Trygve Lie's forbearance during the UN's turbulent formative years to the Nobel committee's awarding Kofi Annan and the United Nations the prize for peace in 2001, the case studies all follow the same format, first detailing the environmental and experiential factors that forged these men's ethical frameworks, then analyzing how their "inner code" engaged with the duties of office and the global events particular to their terms." "This study provides valuable insight into how religious and moral leadership functions in the realm of international relations, and how the promotion of ethical values works to diffuse international tensions and improve the quality of human life around the world."--BOOK JACKET
