Over-riding Unity

Over-riding Unity

These are the weaknesses. The strength of the IUS is that it genuinely represents about two million students, perhaps 70 per cent of the world's total. Its strength lies in the overriding sense of unity of purpose, aims and ideals, beyond the conflicts of formal meetings. Its value lies in its role as a bridge between nations, increasing co-operation, sympathy and understanding. Its strength lies in the freedom of expression in its meetings, where I can honestly say that no voice was drowned or overborne. Its value, above all, lies in the work it is doing and can do to improve the lot, physical and mental of every student in the world.
