Ahlenius will discuss the role of the leadership of the world's largest and most prominent international organization - the United Nations.
Do not miss this opportunity to listen to a great international profile, truth-teller, and criticizer of the current Secretary General of the UN!

Ahlenius has also served as Auditor General of the Swedish National Audit Office, as well as in Kosovo 2003 - 2005 under the UN administration.
Ahlenius was on the Expert Committee that investigated, in 1999, suspected corruption within the European Commission. It's report lead to the resignation of the whole commission . In 2010 she wrote an internationally recognized, very critical, report to the Secretary General of the UN - Ban Ki-Moon. The report also led to the publishing of the book “Mr Chance", which Ahlenius authored together with Niklas Ekdahl.
Today Ahlenius is a holder of the Assar Gabrielsson Visiting Professorship at the School of Business, Economics and Law in Gothenburg.
During her lecture, Ahlenius will discuss the question of what a good leadership for the UN would look like, and what kind of a leader the UN needs in the future?
We will get the chance to hear Ahlenius’ views on the Secretary General’s role, both regarding leadership and in regards to the organizational structure of the UN. If the position of the UN has fallen under Ban-Ki Moon’s leadership, how can the organization move on and get back on it’s feet?
