To coincide with President Obama’s twin addresses to the UN, the Managing Global Insecurity project at Brookings (MGI) hosted a panel discussion in New York on September 22 with Brookings President Strobe Talbott, former head of UN peacekeeping Jean-Marie Guehenno, MGI Director Bruce Jones, Brookings Senior Fellow Homi Kharas, and Jim Traub of The New York Times.

The panelists addressed the Obama administration’s performance in the UN and G20, Ban Ki-moon’s leadership of the UN, the challenge of Iran to the future of international cooperation, and the role of economic interdependence in major power diplomacy.
