A former president of the United Nations General Assembly will speak at Purdue University Calumet Tuesday. Srgjan Kerim, who presided over the UN General Assembly during the 2007-2008 term, will speak on multilateralism and the United Nations.
Kerim is a well-known Macedonian diplomat, economist, academician and author of nine books about international politics, economics and youth issues.
“During this 70th year of both the United Nations and Purdue University Calumet, Dr. Kerim’s visit and presentation causes us to reflect on the nature of global and local challenges to peace and security. His presentation will highlight his own experiences with multilateralism in an age when many issues spill over national borders and cannot be solved by any one country,” Purdue Calumet Associate Professor of Political Science Meg Rincker said.
Tuesday’s event is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. at Purdue University Calumet’s Student Union & Library–Room with a View. It is free, but seating is limited. Attendees are encouraged to RSVP by emailing Sue Schultz at email@example.com or calling 219-989-2347.
