Twenty-five years ago I got the UN General Assembly to adopt a resolution asking for the restitution of stolen works of art to their country of origin.
Quite a few were restituted: the crown of St. Stephen was returned by the United States to Hungary, the coronation mantel of Montezuma, made of quetzal feathers, was returned by Austria to Mexico, etc. Would it not be wonderful if during the 50th anniversaries of the UN and UNESCO and during the celebration of the year 2000, a whole series of restitutions of works of art could be made?
Some of them could even be declared world properties or treasures and displayed on the supranational grounds and premises of the UN and of its agencies, which belong to all humanity. We would welcome some on the prestigious grounds of the University for Peace to inspire students and visitors from around the world.
If someone telephoned each head of state and asked this simple question: What will be the world population in the year 2050? I am sure not a single one would know the answer widely publicized by the United Nations. Why? Because they were wrongly, insufficiently inducated. The fate of the world is in the hands of global illiterates. The University for Peace, a school of future heads of states, attempts to correct this situation.
