What role should the United Nations play on the world stage in generations to come? The planet is facing challenges which ignore borders and the behaviour of states’ leaders. Finding solutions to common problems might mean a reset where the evolving role of nations, weight of continents, value communities and rights based approaches breathe new life into discussions around the UN’s future. Join Studium Generale, Amnesty International Studentgroup Wageningen and Greenoffice, for a panel discussion between expert guests with vast experience at the heart of the United Nations to see what dynamics are at play and what options the world is looking at to deal with them.
