On February 27, three days after Russia invaded Ukraine, the Security Council called for an emergency session of the General Assembly. For many, this was the moment the UN stepped firmly back onto the world stage. But was it too late? The Charter's mission is about keeping hostilities from ever boiling over. What failed?

UNA-San Francisco has assembled four renowned UN Experts to discuss these essential and urgent issues.

Dulcie Leimbach: Editor and Co-Founder of PassBlue, a digital publication covering the UN; contributing author to The UN Association-USA: A Little Known History of Advocacy & Action.
