Dr. Roger Lipsey

Roger Lipsey's book, Hammarskjöld: A Life, was published in March 2013, by the University of Michigan Press. The first major biography of Hammarskjöld in forty years, it is a thorough reinterpretation that has been welcomed with appreciation by readers inside and outside of the UN. Since publication, Roger has spoken on the Hammarskjöld legacy under UNSSC auspices and others', in New York, Geneva, Turin, and Dublin. He has been invited to speak on UN Day 2017, at the Nobel Peace Centre, Oslo, on Hammarskjöld's practice of peace.

Roger has written on a wide range of topics and intellectual figures, from the celebrated monk and author Thomas Merton to Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, a founder of Indian art history and classic author on comparative religion.

A graduate of Yale College (BA), he earned both his MA and PhD from New York University.
