Edited by Kim Fontaine-Skronski, IPSA Executive Director, Valériane Thool, Lecturer in International Law at University of Sherbrooke, and Norbert Eschborn, Director of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Canada, the book is composed of original articles by scholars and policy notes from practitioners based on contributions to the 2020 IPSA Conference entitled “The UN at 75: Challenges and Prospects for the Future of Multilateralism”.
The lecture sparked an engaging and dynamic Q&A session, with audience members asking a wide range of questions related to the book, the UN system, and today’s urgent global crises.
