The moderator is Ved Nanda.
Panelists discuss what would be the role of peacekeeping, the role of peacemaking, how these issues bear on the present composition of the Security Council, the way the Security Council interprets its mandate, and the Security Council's relationship with the General Assembly and the International Court of Justice. In addition, they speak about how to function effectively, how peace and justice are inseparable, and how to maintain international peace and security. A question and answer session follows, in which Benjamin Ferencz raises key issues about the failure of the Security Council and the UN, the role of the US, the possible modifications to be made in the future, and what the general public can do to inspire change. A question and answer period follows.
