"High Noon at the United Nations: Will the World's Leaders Agree to a New Consensus on Development, Security and Human Rights?" is the title of an address set for 4:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.
Speaking will be Princeton alumnus Robert Orr, U.N. assistant secretary-general for policy coordination and strategic planning. He has held a number of senior positions within the federal government, including deputy to the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. He also has worked with the U.S. Agency for International Development.
An authority on nation-building, post-conflict reconstruction and peace operations, Orr was part of the five-person delegation that conducted the first independent review of operations in Iraq in 2003 at the request of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
Orr received his M.P.A. and Ph.D. in international relations from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, which is sponsoring the lecture.
