Lawfare's Quinta Jurecic on what's next for the January 6th Committee and the steps Congress can take to safeguard American democracy.
The United Nations celebrates its 70th birthday this year. Founded after World War II, its goal was to prevent such a large-scale conflict from ever happening again. Over the years, the U.N. has grown from 50 members to nearly 200. Meanwhile, the mission has evolved and expanded, to address issues like hunger, disease, poverty and human rights abuses. Some argue that in our increasingly connected society, the U.N. is more crucial than ever. Yet, critics say recent crises like Ebola and the war in Syria highlight the institution’s challenges and raise questions about its current and future relevance. We explore the role of the United Nations seven decades after its creation.
