The United Nations at 70: A Conversation with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s visit will highlight the 70th anniversary of the founding of the UN, part of a larger trip to the Bay Area to commemorate the San Francisco Conference, where the charter establishing the UN was signed in 1945. After his speech, he will participate in a question and answer session with Ambassador Kathleen Stephens, the U.S. ambassador to the Republic of Korea (2008-11).
This is Ban’s second visit to Stanford in under three years. In January 2013, he delivered a speech to mark the occasion of the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center’s thirtieth anniversary.
