The Guardian covered New America NYC's event with the candidates for United Nations Secretary General:
Candidates for the world’s top diplomatic post, United Nations secretary general, are to compete openly for the job for the first time as the current holder, Ban Ki-moon, prepares to step down at the end of this year.
The contenders are to explain their ideals and intentions in front of representatives from the 193 member nations next month at the UN general assembly and many will also hold unprecedented public debates in New York and London, co-hosted by the Guardian, facing questions from individuals and civil society organisations from around the world.
The 13 April event in New York will be staged in Civic Hall, a community centre and forum in the Flatiron district, in collaboration with the New America thinktank.
