Ebola Poses Test For U.N. SG Ban, New York Times Reports

New York Times: Ebola Presents Challenge, and an Opportunity, for U.N. Leader
“Ban Ki-moon, in his seventh year as the secretary general of the United Nations, has a full plate of unsolved problems, from a widening war in Syria to conflicts in the Central African Republic and South Sudan — to say nothing of climate change. Now comes Ebola. For Mr. Ban, it represents a crucial test of leadership — but also an opportunity. If he can be more effective in mobilizing world leaders to contain this calamity than he has in the others, it can serve as something akin to redemption. Or else it could leave a deep stain on his legacy…” (Sengupta, 9/18).
