ASIL: 100 Days - A Live Online Briefing Series

As noted previously, the American Society of International Law is sponsoring "100 Days - A Live Online Briefing Series." The second session - on "U.S. Engagement with the United Nations " - is scheduled for Thursday, February 23, 2017. Here's the idea:
This live online briefing, the second in the Society's new series on "International Law and the Trump Administration," will feature two former U.S. deputy assistant secretaries of state for international organization affairs: Bathsheba Crocker (2014-2017) and Mark P. Lagon (2004-2007). They will discuss the role of the U.N. on a broad range of global issues; the challenges it faces in advancing its mission; its relationship to the United States and its importance to U.S. national interests; criticisms of the institution and proposed reforms; and the prospects for continued U.S. support.
