The United Nations was founded 71 years ago at the close of World War II in an era of great hope for its ability to address threats to peace and security, the needs for economic and social development, and international cooperation on a host of problems from refugees, disease, and famine to illiteracy and human rights violations.
Edgewood resident Peggy Karns will provide an overview of how scholars and policy analysts assess the UN’s accomplishments and shortcomings today. Peggy is Professor Emerita of Political Science at the University of Dayton and currently Visiting Professor with the new doctoral program in Global Governance and Human Security at the University of Massachusetts Boston. She has written extensively on the UN and other international organizations and is coauthor of The United Nations in the 21st Century, whose 5th edition was published this summer.
