    Contact: Reference Desk   485-3445 x3702   adultevents@poklib.org
   

On the eve of the international organization’s 70th birthday, the United Nations stands at a crossroads. This year marks a halfway point in the organization’s global effort to eradicate poverty, hunger and discrimination, as well as ensure justice and dignity for all peoples. But as the UN’s 193 member states look back at the success of the millennium development goals, they also must assess their needs for its sustainable development goals — a new series of benchmarks, which are set to expire in 2030. With the appointment of the ninth secretary-general in the near future as well, the next UN leader is bound to have quite a lot on his or her plate going into office.  Facilitated by Ilgu Ozler, Assoc. Prof., Dept. of Political Science and International Relations and Director SUNY Global Engagement Program in New York City.
