Title: The United States and the United Nations at 72.
Featured Speaker: Dr. Albert Celoza

After the Second World War, the United States, the sole remaining world power, was most influential in founding the United Nations. The UN Charter has made a commitment "to maintain international peace and security, to develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to achieve international co-operation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion." Has the United Nations achieved these lofty goals? What is the role of the United States in the United Nations in the current global political scene?
