Video: Rt Hon Mr Jack Straw MP on Global Governance

3 December 2013

The Rt Hon Jack Straw joined us at the UCL Institute of Global Governance (IGG) on 28 November to talk about the strengths and limitations of the UN system. Jack also spoke in his capacity as the inaugural Chair of the Advisory Board to the recently launched IGG.

As former Foreign Secretary and with extensive experience of multi-lateral diplomacy at the highest levels, Jack is one of the UK’s leading figures in global diplomacy.

In conversation with Dr Tom Pegram, Deputy Director of the IGG, he reflects here on why we need an Institute of Global Governance at UCL, why it is important to promote public debate on the challenge of global governance, and the relationship between policy-making and implementation at the global level.
