The first modern Swede. The benchmark against which all UN Secretaries-General have been judged, and most found wanting. These are just some of the value judgments concerning Dag Hammarskjöld. The first by John F Kennedy (1961), the second by Swedish politician Mats Svegfors (2005), and the third by the Financial Times (2011). It is striking that Hammarskjöld continues to be relevant today. Around the world there are streets, squares, medals, prizes and schools that carry on the name of Hammarskjöld. Among the UN Secretaries-General, Hammarskjöld seems to be the most visible. He is the only one that has a building named after him in the Headquarters on Manhattan: the Dag Hammarskjöld Library. In the UN lobby there is always a floral wreath in the honor of Hammarskjöld and others who have died in the service of the UN. It is also said that many UN staff members keep photos in their rooms of Hammarskjöld as an important role model. Kofi Annan has declared that in difficult situations he asked himself What would Dag do? In a bibliography from 1999 of the first seven Secretaries-General, the list of Hammarskjöld s entries exceeds the other ones (Peter J Kelly, 1999). The national library system Libris, registered more publications about Hammarskjöld in 2005, when Hammarskjöld would have turned 100, than in 1961 or 1962, when he passed away. The later publications not only consist of biographies or books on UN, but also fiction, novels, crime and poetry books inspired by Hammarskjöld, as well as drama and music that either address Hammarskjöld s life or illustrates his poems. He seems to inspire our imagination. Dag Hammarskjöld s life and legacy is alive. Hammarskjöld still affects UN as an organization; how the profession of an international civil servant is perceived and acted; but maybe most importantly, he still influences many individuals around the world. Dag Hammarskjöld exercises a strong symbolic leadership. In many ways, maybe as strongly as when he was alive. There is much to learn about and from Dag Hammarskjöld. This bibliography is most welcome. In organizing his legacy, it is important to be able to get to know the works about Dag Hammarskjöld. Thank you Dag Hammarskjöld Library and UN Librarian Gunnel Torén for this work. PhD Lena Lid Falkman (Andersson) is a scholar who wrote her dissertation on Dag Hammarskjöld; Ledarskapande Retorik (EFI 2009), which has received international rewards. Lid Falkman works with the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation. Dag Hammarskjöld the Peacemaker by Gunnel Torén 5 Fifty years have passed since Sweden s most famous peacemaker, Dag Hammarskjöld, was killed in a plane crash in Africa but his legacy lives on. During his years at the United Nations he successfully expanded the roles of the Organization and of its Secretary-General in world politics. Commemorating his death is a way of honouring his faith in the potential of the United Nations. Nothing is impossible In April 1953, Dag Hammarskjöld ( ) was elected UN Secretary-General, a position he held for eight years. He was told by his predecessor that he was about to enter the most impossible job on this earth. But with his personal integrity, courage, diplomatic skills and purposeful drive to implement the ideals of the UN Charter, Hammarskjöld brought new authority to the role. His innovative approach strengthened the UN s ability to avert impending conflicts. During the 20th century, Hammarskjöld was the Swede who became best known for his international achievements. Quiet diplomacy Hammarskjöld was born in Jönköping but grew up in the university town of Uppsala, where his father was the County Governor. He became a Senior Lecturer in Economics in Between 1936 and 1945, he served as State Secretary of the Ministry of Finance, before joining the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1946, where he stayed until He was the Swedish representative at the Paris Marshall Plan Conference in 1947, the Chief Delegate to the Organization for European Economic Cooperation (OECC) from 1948 to 1953, he became the State Secretary for Foreign Affairs in 1949 and a Cabinet Minister without portfolio in In many respects, Hammarskjöld was an unknown quantity, when he accepted the position as UN Secretary-General at the age of 48. However, it soon became clear that he had the ability to make the sluggish organization more effective. He gained a reputation as a highly dedicated, self-sacrificing official with a far-sighted vision of his position. He was enterprising, dynamic and driven by a desire to act quickly in order to solve problems at an early stage, before they became more complicated. During his tenure, he introduced quiet diplomacy at the UN. He was of the opinion that in certain situations, this method was preferable to open debates, which often led to more severe conflicts. 6 Preventive diplomacy Hammarskjöld brought new authority to the position of UN Secretary-General. Being successful is to implement what is possible, Hammarskjöld once said. He had pragmatic ideas for solutions and saw the UN as a dynamic instrument for global peace and security. As a negotiator, he followed a neutral line and emphasized the duty of the UN to assure the interests and rights of smaller states in relation to superpowers. He formulated a concept of preventive diplomacy, founded the United Nations developmental cooperation, and shaped the UN s mandate to establish a peacekeeping force a model that has become an important instrument in United Nations conflict management tools. Three global crises During his tenure, Hammarskjöld managed to mitigate the impact of severe crises in the world. He knew how to use the UN charter as a basis for a strong response, and contributed to the UN becoming an important peacekeeper in several international conflicts. Hammarskjöld successfully ameliorated the consequences of three world crises: in the Suez war, 1956, and in the conflicts in Lebanon and in Laos. When civil war broke out in the Congo, Hammarskjöld was instrumental in having United Nations forces sent to the area and he personally tried to mediate between the fighting forces. It was during this mission that Hammarskjöld was killed, his plane crashing on the way to Ndola, in modern-day Zambia, on 17 September, Nobel Peace Prize In 1961 Hammar skjöld was posthumously awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He was also a prominent cultural figure a writer and a translator and one of the 18 members of the Swedish Academy. Related links The UN biography of Dag Hammarskjöld.

The purpose was to provide a lasting memorial to Dag Hammarskjöld, the second Secretary-General of the United Nations Uppsala is an appropriate setting for such a library, since Dag Hammarskjöld spent his childhood here and later earned his first degrees at Uppsala University. At its beginning the Library was financed by Uppsala City Council and served as a special department of Uppsala public library. As the Library became more focused on international issues the Dag Hammarskjöld Library Foundation was formed in The foundation includes Uppsala City Council, Uppsala University and the Swedish UN Association. Since 1996 the Library has been functioning as a special branch of the Uppsala University Library dedicated to international relations. Library Activities Since its beginning the Library has been a depository for United Nations publications and it receives almost all printed material from the United Nations headquarters. It holds Scandinavia s most complete collections of UN documents dating back to In order to facilitate access to UN documentation the Dag Hammarskjöld Library has created an internet guide called DagDok, designed for students, librarians and scholars with an interest in United Nations documentation. It presents an overview of the various types of documents and publications issued by the United Nations and provides guidance on how to work with them. DagDok is available in Swedish and English at In addition to the UN collection the Library includes other literature e.g. books and journals from related areas, especially pertaining to international peace and security issues, political science, global economics and social issues, as well as questions of human rights. A special collection of literature on and by Dag Hammarskjöld is also available.

According to the charter the broad purpose of the Foundation is to promote, in the spirit of Dag Hammarskjöld, social, political, economic, environmental and cultural development in the South and globally. While we have limited resources, we have been able to build up and draw on a large network of experts and practitioners in international institutions, governments, the academic community and, increasingly, civil society organisations and social movements. To our seminars participants are invited in their personal capacity, thereby stimulating an open and creative exchange of views intended to achieve concrete results. Some seminars are conducted cted in an exploratory manner, while others are specifically focused on the formulation of detailed policy recommendations.
