Join the International Law Society (ILS) for a screening of the 2015 documentary film The UN: Last Station before Hell. Snacks provided.
The United Nations celebrated its 70th anniversary in the fall of 2015. Among other innovations, members of the UN devised the concept of “soldiers for peace.” But can peace be enforced militarily? The original mission of the UN was “to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war” by maintaining peace and security between states. Now that terrorists and internal conflicts strike far more frequently than traditional inter-state wars, what does international security mean? How might the UN succeed in its peacekeeping missions? This film explores these challenging issues through field investigations and interviews with key decision-makers in UN peacekeeping.
