International Conference “The United Nations Security Council Contemporary Threats to its Legitimacy and Performance“
22 – 25 May 2016, in Ascona, Switzerland (the conference venue of the ETH Zurich).
The aim of the conference is critically to take stock of, and to further develop, the debates of the last twenty years regarding the composition and decision-making process as well as the substantive work of the UN Security Council (UNSC). In doing so, the conference will take into account recent events and developments in international law and international politics, embed them in the context of the history of the UN, and analyse them using state of the art theoretical frameworks from international legal theory, political science, and political philosophy.
The conference is open for attendance by all interested individuals, in particular academics, but also government officials and policy-makers. If you wish to attend the conference, you are therefore kindly requested to express your interest in an Email to Ms. Sué González Hauck (firstname.lastname@example.org). The organizers will then inform you whether you can register for the conference
