A former secretary-general of the United Nations will be on the University of Notre Dame’s campus Wednesday. Ban Ki-moon was the eighth person to hold the position, serving from 2007-2016. Ban will deliver a lecture at the Asia Leadership Forum at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. The sold-out presentation is titled "The United Nations and Global Citizenship" and it will begin at 6 p.m.
Ban founded the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens with former Austrian President Heinz Fischer, an Austrian-based organization that aims to empower youth and women.
Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies Director Michael Hochx says ""it is a singular honor to host Secretary Ban for our Asia Leadership Forum. An inspiring humanitarian, he has boldly addressed critical challenges of our time: climate change, poverty, gender inequality and global health crises. This type of leadership – for the greater good of the world – reflects the mission of the Liu Institute, the Keough School and the University."
