Panel discussion including: a) Paul Szasz, principal officer of the Office of Legal Advisor of the United Nations; b) Robert Rosenstock, US Representative on 6th Legal Committee of the United Nations; c) Anthony D'amato, Northwestern University professor; d) Alan Gerson, special assistant to J. Kirkpatrick at the United Nations; e) Ved Nanda. Benjamin Ferencz is the moderator. Panelists evaluate the aspirations of the United Nations, the realities today, and the possibilities for the future. Ferencz comments that all nations need to be willing to compromise and enforce together the principles of a United Nations covenant and charter. Moving in this evolutionary process will, according to Ferencz, allow humans to "win the race between civilization and disaster." A question and answer period follows.
