UN-ifying the world? Ft. Jan Eliasson, Deputy UN Sec-Gen
The UN was created in the wake of World War II as a system to promote peace and avoid war. But with conflicts proliferating and the UN Security Council frequently deadlocked by the veto system, its legitimacy and usefulness have been brought into question. Can the UN evolve to meet modern security challenges, and does it have the capacity to ensure the respect of international law? Oksana is joined by Jan Eliasson, the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, to analyse these issues.
