This organisation was established to keep the peace, but over time it has come to affect virtually every aspect of our lives. At this talk, speakers will discuss its strengths and weaknesses and assess whether it is effective, if it can be improved, and whether it is the most appropriate collective global response to the major challenges our world now faces.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
