On February 21, the Russian Council of International Affairs had the pleasure to welcome Robert H. Serry for a lecture on the UN and international conflicts resolution.

The event was attended by several experts and students who got the opportunity to hear about the former experiences of the Dutch diplomat in the sphere of conflict management on behalf of NATO, as UN Envoy on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and as mediator in Ukraine.

The event was the occasion for an extensive discussion on the evolution of the role of the United Nations in conflict resolution, from its origins until the current crisis of confidence it experiences.

The event was the occasion for an extensive discussion on the evolution of the role of the United Nations in conflict resolution, from its origins until the current crisis of confidence it experiences.

Robert H. Serry proposed a few reflections on Track II Dialogue and on the need for the actors of conflict management to put aside the issues of recognition and to be ready to include any important actors, including non-state ones, in discussions.

Eventually, the topics covered during the lecture opened a debate over fundamental themes related to the preservation of international peace and security, such as the need for realistic prospects in international operations, the transformation of the UN Security Council or the relation between legitimacy and legality.
