A Vision of Hope, informing its audience of the work of the United Nations towards peace, development and democratisation, is a valuable contribution to promoting continued and enlarged understanding and support for the Organization.
H.E. Boutros Boutros Ghali, previous United Nations Secretary General
I would like to offer my sincere thanks for the tremendous contribution which Regency Foundation Networx has made to the success of the United Nations Fiftieth Anniversary commemoration. The Anniversary provided an opportunity for us to remind people in every country and their leaders of the promises set forth in the charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and other conventions. We also have been able to educate a new generation about the importance of international cooperation. A Vision of Hope has been important in communicating these goals, and the role which the United Nations can play.
Gillian Martin Sorensen, Special Advisor to the Secretary-General for Public Policy
Thank you so much for the book 'A Vision of Hope - the Fiftieth Anniversary of the United Nations'. This book will provide a much needed function of providing public awareness of the United Nations and will contribute to greater understanding and support for it. I certainly look forward to reading it in more depth.
