– Administrative

– Human Resources

– Peacekeeping

– Mediation

– Administrative . The secretary-general oversees the UN Secretariat , which handles UN operations, including research, translation, and media relations. The Secretariat—the UN’s executive office—has a staff of close to nine thousand people from about 170 different countries. Each secretary-general has handled his administrative responsibilities differently. Hammarskjöld established a system of offices in charge of legal, political, personnel, and budgetary aspects of the secretariat. Boutros Boutros-Ghali streamlined the system by adding under-secretaries-general to oversee operations and report back. During Annan’s administration, the deputy secretary-general position was created to handle day-to-day operations.

– Human Resources. The secretary-general appoints under-secretaries for approximately fifty UN posts, including the heads of funds such as

UNICEF and UNDP . An important aspect of the hiring process involves lobbying from members to fill posts with their nationals, highlighting the secretary-general’s role of negotiating with the Security Council and General Assembly to ensure broad regional representation.

– Peacekeeping . The secretary-general’s office oversees peacekeeping missions and appoints the under-secretary in charge of that department, involving some sixteen operations worldwide as of early 2017. Although the General Assembly or Security Council may initiate a peacekeeping mission, operational control rests with the Secretariat.

– Mediation . As part of his “good offices” role, the secretary-general makes use of his independence and impartiality as the head of a global organization to prevent and stop the spread of conflict. Examples of UN leaders taking on mediation roles in the past include Hammarskjöld’s promotion of an armistice between Israel and Arab states and Javier Perez de Cuellar’s negotiation of a cease-fire to end the Iran-Iraq War. The secretary-general also appoints envoys charged with brokering peace deals. Such envoys report to the Security Council and their appointments can be influenced by the preferences of powerful members of the Council. In February 2017, for example, the United States objected to Secretary-General Guterres’s appointment of former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad as envoy to Libya, raising the question of whether such appointments must be approved by the Security Council although the UN Charter gives the secretary-general the authority to make them, says Megan Roberts, associate director of CFR’s International Institutions and Global Governance program.
