Description

Seventy years since its founding, the United Nations remains the primary multilateral forum for dialogue among states on pressing issues of global peace and stability. No other organization in the world provides so much to so many: food aid, aid to refugees, protection of the rights of children, provision of peacekeeping missions in hot spots around the globe, oversight of elections, assistance to mother and childhood health, family planning and the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, prosecution of war crimes, and addressing critical issues such as landmine victims, pandemic disease, child soldiers and modern-day slavery. Yet the effectiveness of the UN is entirely predicated on the willingness of its member states to empower it. For years reformers have called for improvements to its management and to its operations. Two seasoned diplomats with expert views on both the best and worst of the institution will talk frankly with NPR anchor David Greene.
