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.
Roger Lipsey: Biographer, art historian, editor, and translator; author of Hammarskjöld: A Life, hailed as the definitive Dag Hammarskjöld biography, and Politics and Conscience: Dag Hammarskjöld on the Art of Ethical Leadership.
Stephen Schlesinger: Fellow at the Century Foundation; author of Act of Creation: the Founding of the United Nations.
Thomas G. Weiss: Presidential Professor, The CUNY Graduate Center; Distinguished Fellow, the Chicago Council on Global Affairs; author of Would the World Be Better without the UN? and What's Wrong with the United Nations and How to Fix It.
