Chair of The Elders
You have to be open as a leader, willing to listen. A leader need not always be right; a good leader is also a good follower.
Former UN Secretary-General
I remain convinced that the United Nations belongs not only to the governments of its Member States but above all to their peoples, in whose name it was founded. That means that it must become more democratic by ensuring that all the world's peoples, and not only the richest and the most powerful, have a voice and also that those who make the decisions genuinely represent their peoples and are accountable to them.
International conflict mediator
Today's real borders are not between nations, but between powerful and powerless, free and fettered, privileged and humiliated. Today, no walls can separate humanitarian or human rights crises in one part of the world from national crises in another.
Advocate for Africa
If there is one area which, above all, will determine the direction of Africa’s future, it is the quality of its governance and leadership.
