Robert Muller, Ph.d.

Robert Muller served the United Nations for thirty-eight years until his retirement as a high-ranking officer in 1986. An internationally known speaker and author, he is Chancellor Emeritus of the University for Peace established by the U.N. in Costa Rica.

During the last sixteen years of his career, Robert Muller worked directly with three secretaries-general, U Thant, Kurt Waldheim and Javier Perez de Cuellar, as director of the secretary general's office, as secretary of the Economic and Social Council and as deputy under-secretary-general for coordination and interagency affairs in the secretary-general's office. In this capacity he helped coordinate the work of the thirty-two U.N. specialized agencies and world programs. He was also in charge of launching several world conferences and international years. Appointed assistant secretary-general by Perez de Cuellar, his last assignment at the U.N. was to organize the fortieth anniversary of the U.N. in 1985.
His books have been published in several languages. These include New Genesis: Shaping A Global Spirituality; What War Taught Me About Peace; Peace Plan 2010; Au Bonheur, l'Amour, la Paix; and the novels First Lady of the World and Sima Mon Amour, a multicultural novel unfolding in the U.N. in France and India, which received the 1983 Erckmann-Chatrian literary prize.
He is considered the father of global education, and his World Core Curriculum is used in an increasing numbers of schools around the world and serves as the educational structure of several Robert Muller Schools.
Muller received the 1989 UNESCO Peace Education Prize, the 1993 International Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanities, and the 1994 Eleanor Roosevelt Man of Vision Award.
