Usually shrouded in secrecy and featuring deal-brokering among many governments, the campaign for United Nations Secretary-General will be conducted this time with transparency. The eight announced candidates will appear before the entire assemblage to present their cases; it will be broadcast live on UN WEB TV. Their biographies, letters of recommendation, and vision statements are all here. More information can be found at: the Council on Foreign Relations, the BBC, the House of Commons Library, and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung.
