Isabella Lövin discusses peace at UN Security Council

Published

Minister for International Development Cooperation and Climate and Deputy Prime Minister Isabella Lövin is visiting the United Nations headquarters in New York from 7 to 10 June. There she will take part in a debate in the UN Security Council on protection of civilians and peacekeeping operations, and a seminar on the UN Global Goals and education, together with Minister for Education Gustav Fridolin.

"At a time when large parts of the world are experiencing war and conflict, as well as the largest refugee flows since the Second World War, I will talk about the importance of respecting the fundamental humanitarian principles. This also applies to the UN's own peacekeeping troops, who must be well prepared for the operations they are to undertake and trained in ethics, gender equality and human rights. The world must be able to trust the UN to do its job," says Ms Lövin.

Her speech to the Security Council will be delivered in connection with an open debate on 10 June. Alongside Minister for Education Gustav Fridolin, Ms Lövin will also take part in a seminar on the UN's new Global Goals and Sweden's First Generation campaign, which is about highlighting the particularly important role of young people and teachers in achieving the goals, on 9 June.

On 8 June – World Oceans Day – Ms Lövin will take part in a ceremony to welcome the Polynesian voyaging canoe Hōkūle'a alongside UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. Alongside a number of small island nations, Sweden has taken the lead on a follow-up mechanism to ensure the global implementation of Global Goal 14 on sustainable seas. Sweden and Fiji will jointly host a conference on sustainable seas in Fiji in June 2017.
