Description
"The UN & The Legacy of Ralph Bunche"

Ralph Bunche was a skilled negotiator, respected academic, civil rights leader and civil servant who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In the twentieth century, Bunche was a towering figure: a great American and a great internationalist. Has Ralph Bunche been forgotten by today's diplomats and students of international relations? What is his legacy? What meaning does it have for the United Nations - and the U.S. role in world affairs - today? In this special edition of World Chronicle, these questions are discussed with the help of Sir Brian Urquhart, author of the definitive biography of Ralph Bunche and a former head of UN peacekeeping; Prof. Thomas Weiss, Director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies; and James O.C. Jonah, former UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs.
