The UN at 70 with Dr. Kevin Grisham

On the eve of the international organization’s 70th birthday, the United Nations stands at a crossroads. 2015 marked a halfway point in the organization’s global effort to eradicate poverty, hunger and discrimination, as well as ensure justice and dignity for all peoples. But as the UN’s 193 member states look back at the success of the millennium development goals, they also must assess their needs for  sustainable development goals—a new series of benchmarks, which are set to expire in 2030. A ninth Secretary-General will be appointed in the near future as well. The next U.S. President will have quite a lot on his or her plate going into office but will have to keep the UN in mind as part of the equation.
Program Facilitator – Dr. Margaret Hill, Program Chair, WAC Inland Southern California

Before the session, please read Great Decisions 2016 briefing book article #7
