We are excited to host Hillel Neuer, recently named one of the 100 Most Influential Jewish People in the world by Maariv Newspapers, as one of our speakers at the upcoming Major Function.
Hillel Neuer is the executive director of UN Watch, a human rights NGO based in Geneva whose mandate is to monitor the performance of the United Nations by the yardstick of its own Charter. UN Watch participates actively at the UN as an accredited NGO with Special Consultative Status.
Mr. Neuer has been quoted as an expert on U.N. and human rights issues and has appeared on CNN, BBC, and Al Jazeera. Neuer holds four degrees.
UN Watch is foremost concerned with the just application of UN Charter principles. Areas of interest include: UN management reform, the UN and civil society, equality within the UN, and the equal treatment of member states. UN Watch notes that the disproportionate attention and unfair treatment applied by the UN toward Israel over the years offers an object lesson (though not the only one) in how due process, equal treatment, and other fundamental principles of the UN Charter are often ignored or selectively upheld.
