Lunch & Learn to Meet May 15 for Last Session Of Year
The United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU) are central to international cooperation and the maintenance of global peace and security. Both are supranational organizations established after World War II to address major issues of peace and international cooperation. Both are critical, indeed, indispensable to the future peace and well-being of the world. But despite their pivotal roles in the global schema and name-recognition, what they do and how they affect the common person remain a cipher to most people. Klaus Larres, Krasno Distinguished Professor of History at UNC, an expert on contemporary transatlantic relations and the impact of American global hegemony, will discuss the two organizations and their significance at our final Lunch and Learn meeting at noon on May 15, in a talk he has titled "The EU and the UN: Are They Still Relevant: Peacekeeping, the Euro Crisis and other Matters?" Reservations, due by May 10, may be made via the L&L reservations form tab.
