African Independent - - EDUCATION -

LIS­BON: The in­com­ing head of the UN has warned rich coun­tries were ig­nor­ing the “losers of glob­al­i­sa­tion” by turn­ing to na­tion­al­ist agen­das, as in the US elec­tion and Brexit ref­er­en­dum. An­to­nio Guter­res, elected in Oc­to­ber to take over as UN sec­re­tary-gen­eral next year, said in his na­tive Lis­bon this trend had un­der­mined the will­ing­ness to re­ceive refugees in Europe this year. – Reuters
