What does the Secretary General of the United Nations do?



Just curious.


He or she expresses concerns… sometimes, on rare occasions, they express deep concerns. That’s about it.

The title is pretty explanatory. The UN itself is mostly consisting of clerical and administrative staff as it is the member nations who make all the decisions and executes those decisions. The Secretary General is the top most position in the UN and he is responsible for everything the UN organization does. Basically he is the secretary of the UN General Assembly. So when they want to have a meeting they delegate the tasks to the Secretary General.
