SOUTH BEND -

The eighth secretary-general of the United Nations, Ban Ki-Moon, will deliver a lecture during the Asia Leadership Forum at the University of Notre Dame next month.

The sold out event will feature Ban speaking on "The United Nations and Global Citizenship" September 12th in the Patricia George Decio Theatre at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. The South Korea native served as secretary-general from 2007-2016, and was the first East Asian elected to the position. 

“I grew up in war and saw the United Nations help my country to recover and rebuild,” he has said. “That experience was a big part of what led me to pursue a career in public service.”

The event will be moderated by General Secretary of Rotary International John Hewko, and Notre Dame associate dean for policy and practice at the Keough School, Sara Sievers, will speak with Ban after the lecture about his career at the UN, and his current work. He now runs the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens, which he established last year with former Austrian president Heinz Fischer.

The free event will also be shown on a video board at Midfield Commons in the Duncan Student Center. All unclaimed tickets will be released 15 minutes before the event. More information about the lecture can be found here.
