Sergio Vieira de Mello’s long and distinguished UN career saw him dealing with refugee and human rights issues from Bangladesh, Cyprus and Mozambique in the 1970s, through to Peru, Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Timor Leste in the 1990s. 
He became UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in 2002, as well as the UN Secretary General’s Special Representative in Iraq in 2003.
More than a decade on from Sergio’s tragic death in a Baghdad terrorist attack, the world sadly continues to be plagued by conflict and crisis.
Leading international journalist Christiane Amanpour, herself a veteran reporter from conflicts all over the globe, talks with the UN’s human rights and refugee chiefs about leadership challenges in a world in turmoil.
