8/20/2018 - The United Nations: What It Means to the World and Us

The Southbury Public Library will host Dr. Sergei Kambalov for a talk on the United Nations on Tuesday, September 18th at 6:30pm in the Kingsley room.

What is the United Nations? How is it organized to respond to critical world issues? What may be the topics that world leaders will bring to the 73rd annual General Assembly of the United Nations beginning September 18th? Will there be efforts to reform this institution that was established in the aftermath of WWII? Exploring these issues will be Dr. Sergei Kambalov who spent two decades engaged in a multiplicity of tasks furthering the work of the UN.

Sergei Kambalov retired from the United Nations on December 31, 2010. His last position was the Executive Coordinator of the United Nations Global Alliance for Information and Communication Technologies and Development. Sergei joined the United Nations in 1989 as a member of the author team of the World Economic and Social Survey. Prior to joining the UN in 1989, he was a First Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the USSR, and before that he worked in academic research on international economic relations. He and his wife Elena live in Middlebury, Connecticut.

Registration is required. Call the Southbury Public Library at 203-262-0626 ext. 130
