Discussion about the United Nations via ZOOM

February 18, 2021 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

In 1945, the USA was the most important creator of the United Nations (UN) and continues to be the major contributor to many of its activities and operations. Yet, as the years have passed, most Americans know less and less about the organization. Derek Boothy, who worked for the UN for more than 20 years, will address the following questions:

  • What does the UN do?
  • How does it work?
  • How does the USA benefit from it?
  • Why should the USA continue to belong to the UN?

Boothy was deputy director of operations for weapons inspections in Iraq immediately after the first Gulf War and served on the personal staff of Cyrus Vance in his efforts to stop the war in Bosnia. He was also director of the Europe Division in the Department of Political Affairs and chairman of the UN Iraq Operational Group.
