#1. The UN We Need: What Does it Look Like?

2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the United Nations. As the UN looks to deliver a future that is anchored in universality, indivisibility and integration, an important question has emerged: what UN will we need in order to deliver the future we want?

On Episode 18 of Capital Musings, we pose this question to Mounir Ibrahim—who references his experience as a U.S. diplomat working in Syria, a member of the U.S. Mission to the United Nations under Ambassador Samantha Power, and as the Vice President of Strategic Partnerships with Truepic, the digital photo and video verification platform that is involved in sustainable projects as well as documenting COVID-19 in conflict zones—provides his answer to this question.
