The UN General Assembly President Turns His Focus on Women, but Why?

Published: Tue, 10 Nov 2020 10:49:00 -0500

"... Thomas G. Weiss, the author and co-author of numerous books on the UN and how it works, said in an email that while a year may seem a short time, a well-planned, well-staffed campaign can make a difference on an important issue. “My impression is that all well-prepared PGAs have a theme in mind just as all SC presidents do,” Weiss, a distinguished fellow on global governance at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and presidential professor of political science at the City University of New York Graduate Center, said in his message. (“PGA” stands for president of the General Assembly and “SC” refers to the Security Council.) “For Lykketoft, for example, I met with him and a couple of his NY staff long before he assumed the position,” Weiss said. Weiss said he was not familiar with the details of the new gender campaign, “but I assume that neither the staffing nor the issue will lend themselves to much beyond platitudes.” ..."
