The chapter provides pen portraits of those younger League staffers who went on to senior positions in the new international order, such as Per Jacobsson and Manuel Peréz-Guerrero who became heads of IMF and UNCTAD respectively, and Martin Hill and Adriaan Pelt who served six secretary-generals of the League and the UN. A list is given of over 50 League staff who went on to work for the UN and the agencies. The chapter continues with a sketch of how a League staffer would summarise working in the UN today in terms of what has changed and what is still the same. It concludes with a description of the rise of Geneva to its pre-eminent position today as a centre for international co-operation and multilateralism.
