Innovation - What's new?

Report
IRIN

LONDON, 24 July 2014 (IRIN) - Alexander Aleinikoff, deputy high commissioner for refugees at the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), is frank about the challenge of innovating within what he refers to as “stodgy and sclerotic” UN organizations. He says: “I have not been to one of our operations where people aren't doing really new and interesting things; they just don't tell headquarters about it. Because they are sure that if they tell headquarters it'll be squashed.”

Colleagues,
Ladies and gentlemen,

I first of all want to say a huge thank you because you all worked very hard. I’ve just caught the tail end of some of it when I was talking to you at the reception last night.
