In Memory of Malcolm Harper


Dear Friends,

The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA), including its Officers, Executive Committee and member UNAs would like to send its deepest sympathies and wholehearted condolences to Malcolm Harper’s wife, Ann, and their family. We have lost a great leader and friend who provided decades of service to the international community.
At a time when our organization was undergoing much transition, Malcolm was a constant source of stability and leadership providing 22 years of service as an Executive Committee Member, from 1982 to 2004, and being Chair of the Executive Committee from 1995 to 2000. His contributions as the Director of UNA-UK are too numerous to mention individually, and appropriately align with the three pillars of the UN – Human Rights, Peace and Security, and Sustainable Development.  He chose to collaborate with many other UNAs, often providing them with the guidance and assistance necessary to become stronger and more sustaining. He certainly leaves a strong legacy and provides a benchmark for involvement and accomplishment that many may admire, but few can equal.
Malcolm was truly a global citizen supporting international cooperation, understanding the complex intersection of policy and community, and promoting the important role of the United Nations. WFUNA will commemorate his well respected work and many achievements, and joins the international community in respectfully celebrating his life.
