Abstract

The United Nations will select a new Secretary General this year to take over from Ban Ki-moon, whose term ends on 31 December. In the leadup to the appointment, we are featuring interviews with some of the candidates for the role. In the fourth of these discussions, EUROPP editor Tena Prelec speaks to Irina Bokova, the candidate from Bulgaria, on her plans for the UN and what her experience at the head of UNESCO and in domestic politics would allow her to bring to the position. Bokova counters claims she may be viewed as a Russia-friendly candidate and responds to insinuations which would see another candidate from Bulgaria re-entering the race.
