The UN secretary-general and moral authority : ethics and religion in international leadership by Kent J Kille( )

"Once described by Trygve Lie as the "most impossible job on earth," the position of UN secretary-general is as frustratingly constrained as it is prestigious. The secretary-general's ability to influence global affairs often depends on how the international community regards his moral authority." "In The UN Secretary-General and Moral Authority, contributors provide case studies of all seven former secretaries-general, establishing a much-needed comparative survey of each office-holder's personal religious and moral values. These influences - as diverse as Lutheranism, Catholicism, Buddhism, and Coptic Christianity - guided these individuals as they sought to maintain international peace and security and promote human rights. From Trygve Lie's forbearance during the UN's turbulent formative years to the Nobel committee's awarding Kofi Annan and the United Nations the prize for peace in 2001, the case studies all follow the same format, first detailing the environmental and experiential factors that forged these men's ethical frameworks, then analyzing how their "inner code" engaged with the duties of office and the global events particular to their terms." "This study provides valuable insight into how religious and moral leadership functions in the realm of international relations, and how the promotion of ethical values works to diffuse international tensions and improve the quality of human life around the world."--Jacket

This study examines how the leadership style of a Secretary-General of the United Nations affects the means that they employ to attempt to influence how threats to international peace and security are handled. In order to address this question, the dissertation undertakes an extensive review of previous work on the Secretary-General to determine both what leadership styles and influential behaviors should be examined. Three leadership styles, managerial, strategic and visionary, underpin the debate over the type of leadership that an office-holder might provide. Content analysis of press conferences established a score for each leadership style for all seven Secretaries-General who have thus far held the office
