Deputy Minister Landers to deliver Public Lecture on SA’s UN Security Council tenure
The Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Mr Luwellyn Landers, will deliver a Public Lecture focussing on the priorities identified by South Africa for its two-year tenure in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). Organised in partnership with the Southern African Liaison Office (SALO), the public lecture will be held in Cape Town on Friday, 22 February 2019.
It is expected that Deputy Minister Landers will contextualise South Africa’s work in the UNSC within the framework of the country’s broader foreign policy mission, i.e. “an African continent which is prosperous, peaceful, democratic, non-racial, non-sexist and united, and which aspires to a world that is just and equitable.”
The event forms part of a series of other public platforms through which the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) takes South Africa’s foreign policy to the people. Accordingly, amongst those invited to the Public Lecture are representatives of community organisations, NGOs, think tanks, the academia and foreign diplomatic missions.
