Kofi Annan, Nobel Peace Prize winner and former UN Secretary General, is Philip Dodd’s guest in this edition of Night Waves. It’s a wide-ranging and personal conversation which touches on Bosnia, Rwanda, Iraq and Syria, and also on the debt Kofi Annan owes to his father. He offers a sharp analysis of the challenges facing the UN in the future and of the frustrations and rewards of being Secretary General; as well, of course, as some of the sadness that comes with the job.
