In marking the 70th anniversary of the UN, Ban Ki-moon announced:
“The 70th anniversary of the United Nations is an opportunity to reflect – to look back on the UN’s history and take stock of its enduring achievements. It is also an opportunity to spotlight where the UN – and the international community as a whole – needs to redouble its efforts to meet current and future challenges across the three pillars of its work: peace and security, development, and human rights.”
CSIL’s 70th Anniversary Panel, From the Past, Toward the Future: Reflections on 70 Years and the New Sustainable Development Goals, will unpack this statement and reflect on the role of the UN in an increasingly interconnected, yet complex global society. In particular, CSIL has provided a platform for the its panelists to discuss the newly-announced development goals and what these goals mean for topics like the environment/climate change, human rights, peace and security, and international law.
Professors Bruce Rashkow (CLS), Larry Johnson (CLS), and Elisabeth Lindenmayer (SIPA) will be speaking on the 70th Anniversary Panel. The Panel will take place in Jerome Greene Hall 102A, will run from 6:30 to 8:00 PM on October 22nd, and will be followed by a reception in Jerome Greene Hall Lobby East from 8:00 to 9:15 PM.
Thank you, and we hope to see you there!
