Organised jointly by The Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation, Pax et Bellum and the House of Peace (Fredens Hus).
2011 marked the 50th year of Dag Hammarskjöld’s death. As second Secretary-General of the United Nations he had shaped the organization in many respects. The presentations deal with the relevance of Dag Hammarskjöld’s legacy and translate his ideas into the current global governance architecture, diplomacy and policies.
The event also presents the printed results of the Foundation’s commemorative activities during 2011.
Henning Melber is Executive Director of the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation. Prof. Peter Wallensteen holds the Dag Hammarskjöld chair at the Department for Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University. Both are honorary members of Pax et Bellum.
