Is there reason to celebrate the United Nations marking 75 years? Can it survive another 75?


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

The past seven and a half decades have seen the end of empires, the fall of the Iron Curtain, and huge advances in the way we communicate. New challenges like climate change have been added to ever present ones like conflict. Is the UN up to these new challenges? Can it survive the US push against multilateralism? Or could the UN itself drift into irrelevance?

In a special episode of the Inside Geneva podcast, host Imogen Foulkes addresses some of these questions with a panel of guests at the Geneva Graduate Institute:

· Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou, Chair of the Department of International History at the Graduate Institute.

· Mallika Goel, Master’s Candidate in International Affairs, the Graduate Institute, Geneva

· Daniel Warner, Analyst and Political Scientist.
