Screening of "The Square"
The U.N. Correspondents Association and Beirut Institute hosted a screening of the Oscar-nominated film for Best Documentary Feature "The Square", by Egyptian-American Filmmaker Jehane Noujaim, on Tuesday, February 18th in the Dag Hammarskjold Library Auditorium.
The Secretary-General
is pleased to know that, as a result of your efforts, the foundations of Beirut Institute have now taken shape. He welcomes the fact that the mission of the Institute as an independant think tank on Arab matters and Arab relations with East and West is translating into strategic partnerships and attracting the support of leaders and policy-makers. He is particularly appreciative of the projects undertaken in the short period since the inception of the Institute and their relevance to the work of the United Nations, including in relation to the Arab agenda, the Arab Brain Trust, the Thematic Councils and the "Off-the-Record UN Security Council Luncheon Series" in which the Deputy Secretary-General participated. Under your able direction and with the participation of many friends of the United Nations on its Board of Directors and Advisory Board, the Secretary-General wishes much success to the Beirut Institute in the advancement of its mission and for a successful event.
A vision

which does not translate into action remains a dream but  an Action without a Vision could turn into a nightmare.
