MPA Policy Discussion #2: The Four Problems of the Apocalypse for the United Nations

Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at 8:00am to 9:00am

Virtual Event

The Covid-19 Pandemic has again brought attention to the role of international organizations as a means of solution to the problem.  It has also shown that there are doubts about this, as criticisms of the WHO have shown.  The pandemic is only one of four problems that cannot be solved by the action of individual nation-states or the magic of the marketplace.  The other three, equally dangerous for the world, are climate change, nuclear weapons and cybersecurity.  The forum will discuss why and how the United Nations needs to lead in the solution and what can possibly go wrong.
