"In January, the U.N. swore in its eighth Secretary General, Ban-Ki Moon of South Korea. Mr. Ban takes the helm of an organization which has been roiled by conflict and criticized for peacekeeping failures and mismanagement,” writes ForaTV, a new online source of public affairs programming, in its weekly Think Tank feature.
“He has promised managerial reform, and a new spirit of cooperation with the major powers, but will it be enough to restore the reputation of the world's only forum for nations to constructively work out their differences and maintain international order? And with no power over the member states, is it possible for any U.N. Secretary to deliver true reform? Where does the U.N. go from here?”
ForaTV asked FDD’s Journalist-in-Residence Claudia Rosett whether the U.N. has lost its way. Her video response is available here.
