DT survey: The Nordic race for top UN positions

Norway has grabbed five new top positions in the UN System since Ban Ki-moon took over the helm of the United Nations almost half a year ago. The other Nordics have only managed to secure two.

Surprisingly, Denmark is the loser and has only two key positions in the UN for the time being.

Sweden ranks first among the Nordics when it comes to the total number of UN top jobs, a review by Development Today shows.

Putting in a good word
