6:34 am
of human rights. some of the male delegates were not pleased at 1st. these ultimately gave was that because she was a woman, she was an activists. right? yes. because there were many different committees. us president harry truman gave her a job on a committee, dealing with social issues. opposite, there was more of a representative job, a token gesture in the denay, and then also putting put gas hook with to who couldn't deliver it to you about with the influx of refugees. after world war 2, social issues suddenly became a thing you can appear to know in case man. okay. eleanor roosevelt took on the task with a lot of careers masculine renewal, and she was appointed the chair of the commission on human rights. and so the butler declaim smart,
6:35 am
which at the moment you commit to a local mission, it's um, commission members complained about the pace she was determined to finish within the given time do what he did on the phone. okay. and and did, did he get one delegate? i think from indonesia complaint he said human rights, so not respected by the commission on human rights because she made the delegates work until 7 pm this summer. i'd like to know what happened at the boulevard back then. because she stayed there whenever she visited. cook, surely there were private meetings in the hotels then as there are now a good review. yes, a lot happens at these informal meetings this week to be revised is the perfect place for such private or even secret meetings.
6:36 am
guests can have their choice of several spacious rooms, but what happens when state guests arrive at the hotel? he does quite fishing with the top officials and the protection of confidentiality is potentially compromised. that's when tacked is crucial. it was because i live in los angeles. a few years ago i received the former secretary general of the united nations copy of your and they had the same time. we had a delegation here from a country that was not necessarily supposed to be directly associated with the secretary general. at harvard, the facts of the united nations protocol asked me to let the secretary general in through the back entrance. or good morning, jeff. this of the only thought the horror, of course i had the red carpet rolls out between the dumpsters. i said to him, i'm sorry to receive you amid the dumpsters, but he just said,
6:37 am
don't worry. it happens all the time in new york trip slip because we want to, we are about $12000.00 you in meetings are held each year in geneva much and what that means in terms of the number of guests, the city, the you in place, an important economic role for geneva, as if our discretion says hoteliers shockmount is essential beside the palace of nations is apart. it's close to the public for security reasons. the so called cut that soon with its many international organizations forms the sci fi within the city of new units on this tonight. but to me, the solver geneva became an international city in 1920 with the establishment of
6:38 am
the league of nations. and new train station and airport were built to the various institutions and non governmental organizations emerged, such as pacifist or feminist associations, which today form their own international ecosystem. the popular, it's sometimes like the people here are living on 2 different planets within one city. but in recent years and more effort has been made to integrate these organizations into the daily life of geneva, moore, i take it, i just want to know if i could get the united nations employs around 10000 people in geneva. but add in the n g o z and international organizations, and that number increases at least 3 fold. hotels naturally benefit from this dynamic in the course, most of international politics and secret meetings, journalists prefer to meet their sources in hotels that night for their discretion . k, a safe places how

depressed will be as is one such journalist born in new york, she's an investigative reporter, covering environmental issues, corruption and money laundering. she reports the scene in and out 0 among other publications. the international theme of geneva comes from i guess 2 elements that are sometimes in opposition with each other. on the one hand, you have, of course, the un, the world's health organization, the international labor association, the international red cross. of course, that's based here. on the other hand, you have the banking sector, which is also very well known internationally. the problem is right now with the stories of money laundering and corruption
6:40 am
have been linked so closely to the banking sector. here they have brought the limelight international, limelight to themselves. unwillingly the such scandals have damage. geneva reputation. can the cities good name be restored? i think geneva is really trying to surpass some of the negative aspects of this image that projects internationally. there's a certain hope that with this new international exchange of data and in what
6:41 am
concerns the banking sector, that any of us so well known for that all these stories that have solely that past will pass. i think it's trying as much as possible to maintain me as an international center of negotiation of humanitarian issues. so that is where the hope lies that all that these bricks, conservative lots together. and that that would be how people see geneva in the future for decades. geneva has attracted not only enterprising reporters in serious journalists, but also pap roxy, from all over the world. the
