On February 11, 2013, UN Secretary-General Ban ki-moon discussed at the Council on Foreign Relations, in New York, the challenges and responsibilities facing the international community today. This meeting was a Sorensen Distinguished Lecture on the United Nations, which was established in 1996 by Gillian and Theodore C. Sorensen to highlight the United Nations and offer a special occasion for its most distinguished and experienced leaders to speak to the Council on Foreign Relations membership.  

Kofi Annan, seventh secretary-general of the United Nations, took part in a Jackson Institute Town Hall Meeting,  on Thursday, Feb.7, at 4:30 p.m. in Levinson Auditorium of Yale Law School.

 During the Town Hall Meeting Annan was interviewed by John Negroponte, the Brady-Johnson Distinguished Practitioner in Grand Strategy at Yale and senior fellow at the Jackson Institute. Negroponte is a former U.S. deputy secretary of state, first director of the Office of National Intelligence, and former U.S. ambassador to the U.N.
 
Annan served two terms as secretary-general from 1997 to 2006. One of his main priorities in that role was a comprehensive program of reform aimed at revitalizing the U.N. and making the international system more effective. Since leaving the U.N., Annan has continued to press for better policies to meet the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable through his work with the Kofi Annan Foundation and other venues.
