Kofi Annan Lecture Series

IPI, International Crisis Group, the Kofi Annan Foundation, and Open Society Foundations will co-organize the annual “Kofi Annan Lecture Series” in New York in September each year, around the time of the high-level session of the United Nations General Assembly, beginning in September 2022. These lectures will focus on issues that Secretary-General Annan prioritized including peacemaking, peacebuilding, and strengthening the international system.

The lectures will provide an opportunity for speakers to set out new ideas and agendas for international cooperation and diplomacy, recalling Secretary-General Annan’s role in championing rules-based cooperation and sustainable solutions.

Read the op-ed “Kofi Annan’s Lessons in Global Leadership” authored by the partners and published by Project Syndicate.
