Scope and content

Series 1897 consists of records documenting the official and extensive travel of the Deputy Secretary-General. Louise Fréchette was appointed Deputy Secretary-General in April 1997 and concluded her tenure in April 2006. The records primarily consist of briefing and trip books dating from 1998 to 2006. These contain itineraries, program information, background about the country to be visited, profiles of officials, talking points and speeches.

A wide-variety of subjects are addressed in the talking points and speeches such as development reform agenda, in particular, poverty and its links to sexual and reproductive health. Other issues discussed were the reform agenda including management reform, allegations of UN peacekeeper sexual abuse in the Congo and the 30 January 2005 elections in Iraq and developments in Afghanistan and the Bonn Peace Process. Key topics also included the need to raise the awareness and understanding of the magnitude of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the Security Council resolution 1296 on the “Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict and Security Council discussion on the Rwanda Report.

In addition, the files detail informal consultations with the General Assembly’s Peacebuilding Commission. Her files for the Sierra Leone Pledging Conference (2005) contain information about a high level donors meeting on Sierra Leone and discussion of elections strategy, the security sector, the extension of state administration.
