Sam Daws, writing in the magazine of the United Nations Association UK (9 December) reflects on the prospects for António Guterres, the person who will replace the current Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon.

Sam writes, “António Guterres has assumed the role of Secretary-General at a time of great flux in world affairs, and he needs our wholehearted support. The United Nations is a unique, precious and potentially fragile experiment in humankind’s recent history. Its continued survival – and I hope flourishing – relies in no small part on our continued public advocacy for strong, credible and effective international institutions and for a fairer, sustainable and more peaceful world.”
