The Miliband Lectures on Global Economic Governance

During his time working at the United Nations, Professor Ruggie's responsibilities included designing and managing Kofi Annan's Global Compact, which promotes human rights, labour standards and environmental principles in global corporate practices.

From 1997-2001 he was Assistant Secretary-General and Chief Adviser for Strategic Planning to United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
