List of World Leaders 2022

4 thoughts on “List of World Leaders 2022

  1. There’s this common, but somewhat odd assumption, that “World Leaders” means heads of state of countries.

    It would be at least as valid to list the heads of international agencies, notably the UN.

    Why not intellectual and cultural leaders? These days some of the business leaders are more significant than leaders of small nations.

    This is not a criticism of the list of heads of state (which is what I came looking for), but why do we call these “world leaders”?
