The second lecture of our lecture series 'The United Nations at 70: Fit for "The Future We Want"?' with Sir Richard Jolly took place at the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and was introduced by Silke Weinlich (DIE) and Steffen Bauer (DIE).

The second event of our lecture series took place at the DIE on May 7, 2015. More than 100 guests came and were welcomed by Silke Weinlich (DIE) and Steffen Bauer (DIE) who opened the evening and introduced the valuable lecturer Sir Richard Jolly, Honorary Professor of the University of Sussex and co-director of the UN Intellectual History Project. 

Sir Richard Jolly, who worked in several positions for the United Nations, did not only review the UN's work of the last 70 but also presented it's current standing and gave a short outlook on the chances and challenges the UN will have to face in the future. In the end, for Sir Richard Jolly, one question remains: "Is the UN 'Fit for the Future We Want'? Or should one better ask: Why should it NOT?".
