Summary
In 1953 Dag Hammarskj old became the second Secretary-General of the United Nations-the highest international civil servant. Before his mission was cut short by a 1961 plane crash in then Northern Rhodesia (today Zambia), he used his office to act on the basis of anti-hegemonic values, including solidarity and recognition of otherness. The dubious circumstances of Hammarskj old's death have received much attention, including a new official investigation (which is summarized in a chapter), but have perhaps overshadowed his diplomatic legacy-one that has often been hotly contested. This text summarizes Hammarskj old's personal background and the normative frameworks of the United Nations.--
