Jack Travels to UN Headquarters on June 8, 2006. On June 1st, We Will Highlight Humanitarian Intervention.

The United States seems to have this interesting, if inconsistent, view of the United Nations. For some, the UN wants to take away our national sovereignty. Therefore, we must weaken the organization. While at the same time, these same people argue that UN is incompetent because they have not power to do anything. Well, which is it?

In order to take a closer look at this issue, we have been talking with national experts in the United States and across the world. The purpose is to focus on the strengths and weaknesses of the organization.

On June 1, 2006, Simon Chesterman will join the program. Simon is a former United Nations official originally from Australia. He has worked in warzones around the world including Belgrade as a UN Humanitarian Affairs Officer. His areas of speciality include humanitarian intervention and the use of force during human rights violation crises.

In our on-going series on the United Nations, our hope is to provide a sufficient base of knowledge for our listeners so that by early June, we will be prepared for what comes next.

On June 8, 2006, Jack will travel to the United Nations Headquarters to broadcast a live program. He will talk with sitting UN officials, Ambassadors, and international experts.
