Working for a Better Organized and More Peaceful World
Marking the 20th anniversary of the Nobel Peace Prize awarded jointly to Kofi Annan and the United Nations
In 2001, the United Nations and its Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize "for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world".
Today, the diploma and the medal Kofi Annan received in Oslo on 10 December 2001 are displayed in the United Nations Museum Geneva.
To mark the 20th anniversary of the award, the UN Library & Archives Geneva presents a series of short videos to remember who was Kofi Annan, his legacy, what has been accomplished since 2001 and what still needs to be achieved.
The UN Library & Archives interviewed young professionals who are currently working at UN Geneva, UN staff who were working for the UN in 2001 and close collaborators of Kofi Annan when he was Secretary-General of the United Nations.
