Real Reform at the United Nations

Dr Edwin J Feulner, member of the 2004-05 Task Force on UN reform and president of the Heritage Foundation, will give a lecture at LSE on Thursday 30 November. His lecture will explore Real Reform at the United Nations.

The past six decades have seen dozens of initiatives from governments, think tanks, and panels of experts aimed at reforming the United Nations. Yet today the UN remains stubbornly unreformed despite an unrelenting series of scandals that underscore the need for change. An ambitious proposal supported by key contributors willing to use their financial clout will likely achieve more than years of cautious negotiation.

Edwin J Feulner is president of the Heritage Foundation. a position he has held since 1974. He served on the Gingrich-Mitchell Congressional Task Force on UN reform (2004-05) and is author of six books. He was awarded the Presidential Citizens Medal by Ronald Reagan in 1989.

The event will be chaired by Howard Davies, director of the LSE

Real Reform at the United Nations will take place on Thursday 30 November in the Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE, Houghton Street, London, WC2A at 6.30pm. The event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
