Ambassador Gerard van Bohemen will discuss New Zealand’s recently completed two-year term on the UN Security Council. Gerard led the New Zealand team in New York during this once in a generation opportunity for our country; he will focus on what it was like operating inside the Council, the challenges, the achievements and the disappointments. In this “view from within” account, Gerard will provide an insider’s perspective of what operating in the Council – and behind its closed doors – was like, how New Zealand sought to influence the way in which the Council goes about its business and some of the less visible gains New Zealand made along the way.
