The UN Security Council: Victim of Great Power Tensions?


  • DATE / TIME:
    2014•09•15    14:00 - 16:00

    The United Nations Security Council, the only international body authorized to mandate the use of force across borders, currently seems unable to have much impact on crises such as those of Syria and Ukraine. Does this mean that it has become ineffective and, with it, that the UN has become less central to international relations?

    In the 81st UNITAR Public Session (hosted by the Chugoku Shimbun and the UNITAR Hiroshima Office), UNU Rector David M. Malone, author of three books on the UN Security Council, will discuss the Council’s track record and its current influence in relation to global conflicts and crises.

    This event is open to the public, but advance registration is required. Simultaneous English/Japanese interpretation will be provided.

    For more information, and to register, see the event page on the UNITAR website.
