Why are some stocks listed twice?

Often because there are two classes of stock such as Berkshire Hathaway for example that has class A and B shares.

What is the difference between UN and UL?

UL is for Unilever PLC and UN is for Unilever NV which are traded as noted below:

"Unilever PLC shares are listed on the London Stock Exchange and, as American Depositary Receipts, in New York. Unilever NV shares or certificates (depositary receipts) are listed on the stock exchanges in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Zurich and as New York shares on the New York Stock Exchange."

From http://www.unilever.com/investorcentre/shareholderinformation/default.asp

While the operate as one entity, there may be some differences between the two such as dividends where UN is yielding 1.9% and UL is yielding 3.8% over the last 12 months using Moneycentral.

Is there any hope Unilever will grow again?

There is always hope. How likely is it and what statistic about the company you want to grow is another question, of course.
