TH: THE TRUMP CHALLENGE TO ANT NIO GUTERRES (GS-2) o Big challenge for new UN Sec. Gen to balance Trumps future policies and restoring credibility of United Nations-Syrian conflict, climate change, North Korea's nukes, Africa's wars and the refugee crisis engulfing Europe. neo Post UN resolution against Israel-Mr. Trump trashed the UN as "just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time." A not-so-veiled threat followed: Not the first time he spoke against UN- anti-UN rhetoric-"The United Nations is not a friend of democracy, it's not a friend of freedom US largest funder to UN-22 per cent of the UN's regular budget. Over 28 per cent of its annual peacekeeping budget of nearly $8 billion also comes from the US. o His stands- strikes at the very heart of multilateralism- vowed to cancel billions in payments to the UN climate change programme-canceling of Paris Agreement- a Chinese Hoax to recent appointments have raised the hackles of environmentalists and human rights activists. Howto ensurethattheUS doesn'tturn increasingly hostile totheUN? 1. Early dialogue with the new President and his Secretary of State 2. Projecting himself from the outset as a reformer of the UN could buy him some brownie points. 3. Reforming the tainted Peace keeping process- Kenya ,Liberia and South Sudan etc. as staff recruitment in UN peace operations is often opaque
TH: THE TRUMP CHALLENGE TO ANT NIO GUTERRES (Gs-2) Nepotismin appointments Special Representative mostly political appointees, interfere in the recruitment of staff to favour their pet candidates closely in the past with Sergey Lavrov, current foreign minister and former Russian ambassador to the UN o From difficult to Impossible job as UN Sec Gen?

Is education for peace still a top priority in universities and colleges? does education help us to live a peaceful life and to bring peace around the world? Education by definition is an ethical enterprise-education is more than a way of being; it is an art of becoming Education, according to Bertrand Russell -"a certain outlook on life and the world", Greeks understood paideia as the essence of culture and communication in a good society Peacebuilding through education. the paideic dimension of peacebuilding Peacebuilding-not just about security, but also a long-term process of educating humanity with a special focus on the importance of promoting peace- it is a continual, concrete, and the daily results of education as a learning process The main concern of education is to engender a certain character in human beings and to teach them the nobility of spirit and the moral common ground of actions- it is a pursuit of moral wisdom. o Immanuel Kant, says the aim of education "must be the moralisation of man"-his belief in the moral progress of humanity which is a self-articulated and self-realised process of attaining intellectual maturity
