Overseas Operations Bill: Government facing calls to rethink plan to 'decriminalise torture' by UK troops

"Torture has been prohibited under international law since nineteen forty eight and is enshrined in legal instruments such as the Geneva Conventions and the United Nations Convention Against Torture. But the British government is trying to push through the overseas operation bill which would introduce a stronger legal protection for UK soldiers serving abroad critics believe it will make overseas operations worse the victims of war crimes and for the UK standing in the world bill passed its second reading in Parliament on Wednesday and three Labor backbench peace had been sucked for voting against. Well Tracy joy is head of accountability and international cousy at freedom from torture, and she joins me on the line to tell us more good morning tracy. What does this bill exactly seek to achieve? Good morning to a gina the do a apparently according to the government seeks to provide greater protection for British troops against vacations claim that might have been brought from operations. That happened overseas more than five years ago. what we believe that it does actually is to create a barrier to justice with those he might have been subjected to war crimes by British troops in those are the operation. I mean, the government says that it is doing this for the soldiers but we've seen very very senior military personnel and ex personal come out to say that they'd gravely concerned about the signal. It sends I mean field marshals, generals, frontline veterans of expressed grave concerns that what are that precise objections? I think the objections that many hold is that and to summarize the words that you spoke in parliament that this legislation really is a sledgehammer to crack a nut. I think that the is acceptance that perhaps the prices that some soldiers have been involved in have taken Fawzi Long. But that really the problem of investigation and the government is seeking to legislate to solve the problem that would be better served through. BITTU. Protesters right at the beginning and more independent and speedy investigation I. mean the government denies that there will be any barrier to justice under these Nino's. It does say presumption against prosecution for torture and crime except in exceptional circumstances, what signal is the sending internationally It's very interesting that they say that but It seems unlikely that you would say that there's no buried to justice when actually they specifically introduced. Three layers of legal protection that would stop prosecutions that would've normally have preceded. And the signal that sins therefore is that they would be sick instances in which to torture would be deemed to be unexceptional and we find that quite startling. Actually, how could the government argue that torture could ever be unexceptional? I mean rape is excluded from from the provisions. That's obviously a good thing torture isn't does not mean that torture is a lesser crime. Well, that seems to be exactly the signal that the government is sending that I mean, obviously, it's excellent that sexual violence and raped or created and the Minister of Defense Been Wallace argued in parliament that the crimes that should never take place on the battlefield. Well, we would that torture should also never take place and it seems quite absurd that they would say out to give the impression that torture and other crimes against humanity as you say, Lesser Crime Than Sexual.

Emirates the Arab. League comprises twenty two member states that include Bahrain Libya Levin on Qatar Egypt Jordan. Saudi Arabia and more a senior League official was quoted as saying discussion around this point was serious and comprehensive, but it did not lead to. Agreement over the resolution proposed by the Palestinians. Steve this is a big deal the Palestinians. If you think about this, the Palestinians probably have more friends in the United Nations than they do in the Arab League where they actually have full membership status, the Arab countries believe this is what the Arab countries are saying to the Palestinians. They believe that normalizing a relationship with Israel is more important than their complaint. Now I do believe that this is going to take the Palestinians in a certain direction I. I believe that there's one way out for the Palestinians and it's not through the Arab League it's actually to go into the arms of Iran. This is something that I think the Israelis are looking toward something that two countries are looking toward as well to make sure that the Palestinians don't go in that direction they already are shaking hands in many ways, but some of the PAL with the Iranians. So we gotta keep our eye on that, but we'll have to wait and see ultimately what happens in the end but continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

And those two were very separate department of political affairs just advise on political no questions and peacekeeping going implement peacekeeping solutions but clearly in the intervening years what we've seen is that the old model of peacekeeping which is really built on the idea of to standing armies of states that had a conflict. Then you would go and place the border between those two states much as you had maybe a recent example as cutrier Nathan via you had the UN sitting on the border. Those days are gone. Most conflicts these days within states. And so you see a much more complicated picture that it's not just the UN going in having blue helmets it oh blue beret. Peacekeepers monitoring ceasefire line the UN is routinely routinely getting much more deeply involved in complex situations whether Tin Congo or Voire Libya where. You're not just keeping peace in the sense ends of maintaining a border. You're trying to stop multiple armed groups from destablizing a political situation. And you're looking at political reform. So that in meshing of politics in peacekeeping I think is why was saying the proposal to move towards linking up political assessment peacekeeping and peace building but the one area Maria where analysts believe. The guitarist reforms may come unstuck relates to funding. So it's important to stress that the peace and security as well as the management reforms. uh-huh both cost-neutral meaning no new financial boat into undertaken either for the development or for the operation and that wasn't the case with the development reforms And that's where the problem lies. The revitalized OSCE system required individual eighty million dollars and so that had to be sourced from either voluntary soft pledges cost sharing in between a lot of the UN agencies and a one percent levy applied to non-core contributions. Now the most interesting one and the one that's most important was the voluntary contributions. Because that precariously premised on the expectation or robbed. The hope I should say that entities make contributions consistently and timely. That hasn't happened in two thousand seventeen countries like Norway and China. As well as the g seventy seven all expressed concerns that these funding obligations wouldn't be met China's specifically and they said this not so subtly. China urged all traditional donors namely the United States meet their voluntary funding obligations. And that's where this complex relationship between the UN in the US comes to the full because it's important to recognize that the US is the largest contributor to the UN it supplies or a fifth of its entire budget. So that's twenty two percent of its regular budget twenty eight percent of its peacekeeping budget and two thousand eighteen that was approximately three report. Three billion dollars but yet the US still falls short of its funding obligations and this is because back in two thousand. When the General Assembly reformed how contributions worked looked they considered the relative wealth and power country and because the US is so wealthy in so powerful it's contributions a significantly higher than what it contribute mute as a result the US is buying for the UN's lodged at owing proximate one billion dollars of the one point? Three Billion Dollars owed by all U N members in October and two in a guitar is actually announced that the UN was effectively running out of cash and would be unable to meet its payroll commitments on this money. Saad flowing concern and so two thousand. Nineteen was the second year that they had exhausted. All budget reserves and had to use funds from left of a peacekeeping missions and the the. US actually admitted that a lot of its decisions are about managing liquidity Robin fulfilling its development mission goals. So in my opinion the system is actually potentially attention asked too much too quickly particularly in an environment where it's lodged dona easing that favorable to the institution itself into funding that institution with more money the difficulties around funding a historic essentially the UN continues to lack a truly independent. Funding base. Suggestions have been thrown up to address. Yes this is Simon Chesterman but there are no easy solutions so there are innovative ideas on the Tobin tax very very modest transactions on on sort of things that are only made possible through a world order by law so some of the ideas that have been proposed things like a fraction of a percent on capital transfers around the world I- miniscule tax on email if you pay a cent a day to send emails onto the Internet ed regulated the net would provide actually fairly significant funding for the UN. But any time these things are suggested as a lot of pushback from industry or from countries because often it's the states themselves that recognize that lays financial contributions are a form of leverage over what the UN does and that. There are a significant a number of member states who actually don't want the UN to be independent Aldermen nights they want to obey the servant of amendment rights and as result is not a huge amount of energy to give the UN and an independent funding by any more than there is to give the UN independent Amin even though the the charter does provide the states to put troops at the disposal of the United Nations Security Council under agreements that you could sign but the UN in the history of the UN notice date has contributed even single soldier on that basis instead soldiers Zahn loaned to the UN or. Just have blueberries put on the technically. They're still fighting on behalf of their individual contributing countries. And that's why. When the first I secretary general tricks lead welcomed the second secretary general? He said welcome to the most impossible job on the planet. Simon Chesterman David Give leads believes one way to deal with future. Financial constraints is for the UN to look beyond its iron ranks to not always try to do things in house. He advocates for a greater involvement with the private sector but he acknowledges there are suspicions about entering into private public partnerships. I heard this question question. Many Times that the price has its own interests and they have its own interest and it's good that they have it's only the essence of UN is just channel this interesting interesting. The way that the benefits the ultimate site.

Private secretaries having motivation real motivation to go faster and quickly and they are profit-oriented so they understand that they need to contribute a lot and be active. Of course purseful awful. They're looking for personal corporate profit. But I don't see any bad on this. One could be both the big negatives on having a corporate profit and the rich people but giving private individuals freedom and initiative to go and do the business.

"For more than seventy years the United Nations has helped to keep the peace Uphold human rights and advance the economic and social well-being of millions a new management paradigm mistaking halls with an emphasis on. Transparency Accountability onto -bility and improved mandate implementation. Today our work is needed more than ever Antonia India guitarist mocking his place as United Nations reform up. He's the first secretary-general to have once been hit of government for several years. He was the Prime Minister of Portugal. Ogle he's also the first chosen under new selection system where aspiring candidates were allowed to publicly campaign for the role this time last year guitarist announced a reform package one that would sit the UN secretary on a path to modernisation in. This program will look at what that package gentiles and what it might achieve and we'll also examine the powerful role of the UN Security Council. Many believe it no longer reflects the realities sees of willpower so Kennedy reformed. Hello Antony Fennell here. Welcome to future. Taints the eight thousand six hundred ridden seventieth. Meeting of the Security Council is called to order the provisional agenda for. This meeting is peace and security in Africa. I think there's value in having initials in the century full stop. I think we must never lose. Sight of what the world looks like when it doesn't have something like the UN is. Is it a perfect system. Now it's a long way from perfect. Is it better than nothing. Is a whole lot better than nothing doctor therapists from the University of Queensland and one of the reasons is why it's a whole lot better than nothing is in the agencies and the oversight that we have for example if thinking of health as a worldwide issue of concern. We we think that way because of the United Nations we think that way because of the World Health Organization. Now that's really important for states. We have people paying attention to an Ebola outbreak in west Africa cricket recognizing that that has regional consequences and potentially world consequences and we need an international body. That's capable of doing those sorts of things you know we are so critical article of the UN but if you're a little tiny country and you can't maintain diplomatic relations very easily because that's expensive having embassies in other countries is expensive. You can have an embassy bassy in New York and you can go to the and you can talk to all the people that you need to talk to. Otherwise were withdrawing that from small states. And we're withdrawing their ability to act on the the international stage and that helps keep the world safer that helps us keep alert to problems helps us keep alert to any potential conflicts that are brewing any potential health health crises if we lose the UN we lose all of that capability sell on set up more than seventy years ago with fine ideals. The United Nations has often been criticized sized as ineffectual. The new Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez brings to that difficult job ten years experience as the UN's High Commission for Refugees. The guitarist reform plan is focused onto Jek gives raining in bureaucracy and making the UN's infield operations more efficient and effective. But he's not the. I walk this path as the National University of Singapore. Simon Chesterman explains so I remember previous round of reforms about twenty years ago when then coffey Hanan came in and was trying to bring about reforms and Sergei Lavrov then the Russian ambassador to the UN now foreign minister came to Annan. and Dan said it's taken you six months and you have really achieved anything. The Lord created the world in six days. What's taking you so long and coffee and and who wasn't always very funny? Did respond to time. The the Lord didn't have to deal with one hundred ninety three member states and so that is a real barrier to reform one of the things that I think could terrace. Terrace has been trying to do which is actually quite clever is focused on just getting the UN to function better does a tendency when people think about reforming the UN and to think in terms of grand changes so what Guiterrez focused on is really trying to just make the UN function more effectively and to do some of the bureaucratic radic creep that has taken place over the past several decades really since the early nineteen ninety s with the expansion of peacekeeping for analyst. Finalists Michael Noonan. The reforms certainly modest but nonetheless necessary. So there were three reform pillars that Gutierrez focus on the the first piece insecurity the second was management and the third and arguably the most important was development so with regards to peace and security. The reforms combine the responsibilities of form offices to create two new departments. The I was the Department of Political and peacebuilding affairs which provided a global responsibility responsibility on conflict mediation and preventative diplomacy. The second bomb was the department of peace operations which would organize the peacekeeping operations of the UN and and managing both these departments. The reforms introduced the standing principles group. which chaired by the secretary-general himself would work? Alongside UN entities and meet birth quarterly an on an ad hoc basis to respond to crises and facilitate effective coordination with regards conflicts and development and human rights. So the second pillar management also focused on reorganizing existing department to create two new offices the Department of Management Strategy Policy and compliance and the Department of operational support and the INFO gets areas. Here was to introduce assistant that was easy to use and understand. He tried to eliminate duplication work outlined clear roles and responsibilities and introduce checks and balances and so author of massive internal review. The reform abolished a significant. Number number redundant issuances and match nearly two thousand stuff to new positions providing training introducing improved performance evaluation systems for senior personnel. Oh and actually achieving agenda balance full senior staff and simply put Gutierrez wanted to or he hoped more likely to develop a culture of results and processes but the third reform pillow the one relating to the UN's in-country development activities that markel new and believes could prove the most important at the heart of the UN when development strategy are united country teams these UN country teams encompass all of the UN entities that the system might have within a specific country. These can can include effectively any in agencies under the United Nations Sustainable Development Group so because the UN Country Team can involve any number of agencies UN required assist awesome to coordinate and lead the country teams. And that's where the resident coordinator system. The system was introduced however in its previous configuration. The resident coordinator system was actually managed by the UNDP. That's one of the very agencies that it's meant to oversee and so you can start to see how this convoluted hierarchy. He made it difficult for resonant coins to have any official authority over the UN agency heads at them and to manage so the reforms in this particular case move the Aussie awesome to instead report directly to the UN Secretary General providing an independent office that had designated in official authority over over the UN country. Teams one vocal supporter of the restructuring of the Resin Coordinator will see system is former Georgia. In Agriculture Minister. David Kiva leads. Who recently made an unsuccessful run to become the UN's head of Food and agriculture? He believes Antonio Qatar is on the right path. This reform generally about this centralization to giving more power to the regional offices in dollars there two sub-regional ordination offices. This is one of those basic impediment. Slowest that sometimes respecting protocols. They are very complicated. Eh for instance one inside the NFL the district approval for his travel. Week ahead not just to get it but sometimes you eunuch just departs the next morning so this is really important. Nobody knows Becker what is needed in Georgia local experts. Nobody knows what these needed in Australia Australia. Better than your local experts on the ground so you must be granted to make decision over there. Not The way instructions from Rome New York from any any headwork when you delegate these and make sure that right people are walking their this reform will be successful so any large bureaucracy tends is be quite good at fighting change but I think the compelling argument that he's making is that if the UN is going to be taken seriously in any area It's GONNA deliver results. The UN can't simply measured development by dollars spent development activities have to be measured by achievements. Realized realized we now have much sense of how to measure impact the Human Development Report the Human Development Index the rule of law indices. We have much a sense of how to actually evaluate how effective the UN is rather than just supply of of resources on the peace and security side. I think there is also a realization is Asian that the long held separation between politics and peacekeeping not longer makes any sense in the past. There was a separate body.

"But it's fairly universal seth. My name is Bruce from planet earth. Recently one of my favorite podcasts. Making sense with Sam Harris went behind a paywall. He did this to avoid the perception that he is being influenced by his sponsors. I respect that but I can't see myself paying the monthly subscription to have access to his work by question question is how consumed continued to provide his podcast free to me but still make a profit. Thanks for all you do. Thank you Bruce. Here's the the deal for twenty or thirty years. People have been talking about the idea that some kind of information wants to be free that information in that spreads changes the culture. How is it then that once we eliminate the scarcity of the container? I used to hold the information. For example books are scarce. Because you have to chop down trees you have to storm you have to ship them. For example music was scarce because you had to put it on vinyl vinyl or a CD for example wine is scarce because it needs to come from a great Bingo on a bottle so leaving wine aside for minute what what are we gonNA do about. The industries built around information. Because the very thing that they depend on the ideas spreading are somehow related to the container that they come in and so when we take words take them out of a book put them into an e book or put them into a podcast. We are starting to eliminate scarcity. Radio had scarcity built right in there. Were only only a few stations in every town spectrum create scarcity so there's only a few stations since there's only a few stations more people listen to each one since more or people listened to each one attention also scarce becomes valuable because you're heaping it in huge piles and you can sell some of that attention to a sponsor but what happens when. There's a million podcasts. When there's a million podcast the average podcast only has twenty listeners? Twenty listeners his not enough to interrupt them and turn around and make a profit so you've outlined the problem. You don't WanNa pay Sam. Sam is worried about the perception that his opinion will be changed by sponsors. I'm not totally sure that that's true. I don't think my opinion about how to brush. Your teeth is changed by the fact that without my knowledge toothbrush. Ads appeared on this podcast but leaving that aside for a second we have more universal problem. Here which is you used to be able to get paid for making content because content was scarce. But more and more. You'RE NOT GONNA get paid for for making content particularly for making generic content if there's content associated only with you as we've seen on Patrie on you can hold your content hostage you can go to your fans and say unless enough of you pony up on like Bruce. I won't make it but you have to mean in it and over time. You may run into a problem because as Tim O'Reilly coined the problem isn't piracy. The problem isn't that your your ideas are spreading without you getting paid. The problem is obscurity. Your ideas aren't getting heard if your ideas are getting hurt then you're are not known and if you're not known then you're not trusted and if you're not trusted you can't change the culture if you can't change the culture you can't create value and so if you're a creator of ideas you need your ideas to spread to how to get paid because we live in a society and culture built on free market and industrial oh capitalism two different things and in both cases we sort of expect people are GonNa get paid for their work toward noting that for more than one hundred thousand years ears. Humans did not get paid for their ideas did not get paid for their song. Did Not get paid for their words. That was your hobby. You got paid for hunting or gathering or farming he got paid for doctoring beating. Get paid 'cause you said something funny. You didn't get paid 'cause you wrote amazing using grace. Just imagine what the world would be like on that one A. Z.. We no how is your hobby. And it's only in the last hundred or two hundred years we turn this into a profession. Some you could expect to get paid for but going forward forward people with ideas are going to get paid and are getting paid for something else. Something scarce they're getting paid for organizing the others they're getting paid for creating places and opportunities for connection. They're getting paid for souvenirs of their ideas. Not The ideas. Themselves chiefs and trumpeters cycle of creative destruction is going faster and faster and faster because now that we can fake someone's voice now so that we can fix someone's video. You're not even sure who the source of the idea is an so chaos will ensue. We are on the cusp of a lot of chaos us and so people who create ideas people create ideas that want to reach people. Like Bruce who don't want to pay for them. It's not clear it to me. We can get paid for our ideas. It's not clear to me that we can create sufficient scarcity to at large scale repeatedly. Make a living so I am doing this podcast. Not because I am getting paid to do it. I am doing this podcast because I can. Because it's a privilege. This is the end of the fifth season of Akimbo. And to those of you who have listened to more than one hundred episodes or just this one. Thank you because because you are offering me something really valuable. You're offering me your attention and that attention implies a level of trust that attention gives us a chance to share ideas and make things better. If you share this podcast I would really appreciate it. It might be good for you as well because if you share this podcast the people around around you might be willing to have an interesting conversation with you. This is the last podcast. I'll be doing with mid roll. Mid Roll are the folks who first showed showed up and provoked me into launching Akimbo. But we're moving on and going forward. This podcast is going to be sponsored by AKIMBO DOT com the platform. We've built that. His trained nearly twenty thousand people in more than one hundred countries using workshops to connect the others creating something scarce in a world filled with plenty of opportunities but not enough chances to find the others. I'm looking forward to twenty twenty because it's a chance another chance once again to make things better. I hope you'll join me. I'm looking forward to making a Ruckus with you. Thank you for listening listening. And here's to a happy and healthy. Twenty twenty go. Make your rockets. I just don't think it's possible or probable in in today's world to distinguish yourself as an educational institution or as a success seeker at the level of information gathering or information formation distribution. I mean this is the information age and you can get a great book a great essay. A great idea anywhere in none of us can do that better than the Internet right There is no oh great thought leader. WHO can out think the Internet like? We have data what all NBA gets right. Is it puts you in a context where you're part of a community that says. Yeah that's good. You got access to ideas you got access to information that's awesome but when you're gonNA show up when you gonNA face blink page when you're going to face the possibilities within you when you got to face those fears I'm not GonNa let you gotTa show up and that's the hardest part and it sounds simple. It sounds very commonsensical. But it's the number one reason why we don't write that book. It's the number one reason why we don't ask that question. It's not because we don't know where we don't have the information. We don't have an environment and can we don't have a support network that makes it feel like showing up as possible for me not just possible for the success stories out there but I Consider the ALT- NBA more than three thousand alumni in seventy four countries around the world find out more at Ault M._B._A. dot com..

"How do you treat some of these underlying causes in case where there's a a significant terrorism and or civil war problem. So the UN announced that the theme for this year shown assembly meeting is making the United Nations relevant to all people, global leadership and shared responsibilities for peaceful and sustainable societies to the UN is relevant today. So are you lost me about centers for their? The UN is pretty good at coming up, sort of pretty bunol phrases like that. I have no idea what that even means. Look to my way of thinking about these things multi-lateralism matters if and when it's a framework in which the major powers find tools with which they can work together to solve problems. And we've seen at various points in history, the major powers including the United States, and the Soviets or the United States sell for now, the United States, the Chinese, the Russians mover. Want to find a solution to a problem needs some place where they can collaborate and it's easier to do that. If there's an established infrastructure for that and a place where they meet anyway, a set of arrangements they can use. That's the potential of the UN to be a place where the major powers come together to solve problems. I'm always resistant to this notion of the UN as kind of solution to global problems and kind of roving for everybody. That's a little bit romantic frankly, where the UN is effective is when powerful countries use it to try to solve problems. So my understanding of the way that the UN Security Council, the wider body Security Council operates is that there's a rotating chair and the United States coincidentally has the chair as the journal someone gets underway. So we'll see ambassador Haley. We'll see President Trump in the chair, kind of leading the discussion. We expect to see what's gonna be listening for in those presentations if they do, and I don't know whether they are, but if they do a presidential meeting of the scared accounts councils only. Been done a handful of times in history. That should be an interesting session to watch. President Trump chairing the Security Council. Bashur Haley has been a very effective Basser the UN she's chosen to make the theme of the presidency corruption. I'm a little torn on that one. Look, I think that corruption is an important part of the international security agenda that kind of massive state corruption of a place like Russia and North Korea is a big part of why those states posed the kinds of challenge. They do Chretien as part of civil wars agenda. That's all fair. I confess I think we are as a country, a place where our credentials to be speaking out on issues of the rule of law are weaker than they should be. That's substantial cost. Okay, fine. That's in the background. She'll try to gender at the UN. If there's a presidential meeting, those tend to be against of acts of drama, more than of substance presidents aren't people who roll up their sleeves negotiate outcomes. They. Posture their country, and we'll see a lot of posturing, but it's within the world of the possible that you could see some alignment of not on the corruption Genda, but on some of the counter terrorism agendas or nuclear proliferation agendas, you could see some alignment of interests among the players at the p. five under American leadership. So once it's all said and done, once the UN general assembly over the delegates back to their countries and what happens to the international peace and security Jenna moving forward?.

"And if it can't harden its own posture, bring more capable troops into its peacekeeping deployments and be part of the answer and pushing back on on terrorism than it's going to start becoming essentially relevant to the management of war. And frankly, that's what we're starting to see. These numbers are Quincy mentally, dental, but they're not from the same phenomenon. It's again, I think it's ninety three percent or certainly about ninety plus percent of battle deaths occur and places where there are no peacekeepers deployed and other words where they're sort of major wars underway. We're not seeing the deployment of UN peacekeepers. Now the UN tends to go into the tail end of a war doesn't go in at the kind of acute, have heavy fighting phase. But even by that standard, we've watched this change over time and in the nineteen nineties. For example, if you did the same measure the number more like forty percent or fifty percents. In other words, the UN was deploying into some of the dangerous wars. Some of the hard cases maybe towards the tail end of. Trying to bring it down to lower levels, but it was certainly a part of the solution said in tapering off levels of civil war. It really isn't part of the solution set right now in dealing with terrorism. And instead you're seeing these informal coalitions, that's fine. One level I tend to believe that over time you get better performance. If you can have a more systematic way of approaching these problems due lessons, learned, share ideas about how to improve your performance, etc. So I would on balance rather see the UN get serious about this problem and have more of those actions undertaken in that framework. But that's an issue. One is gonna have to grapple with because right now is essentially becoming irrelevant to the management of the key problems of international security. What are those tools that the UN general assembly, that the UN as a body has to address these issues apart from two point peacekeeping forces to hot zones? Well, that's a central part of put. So there are some examples where it's doing things like I'm suggesting. So for example, in Mali you have a combined point, you have a French. Deployment you did. It's it's receded. Now you had a French deployment alongside fairly tough n deployment, and those two things together tackled both the rebel movement in Mali and the terrorist organization, Molly and that kind of cooperated in that fight that was a reasonably effective pairing capabilities. But we haven't seen that kind of paring very often. The French are now being replaced by the Dutch and the Canadians in Mali that's still proving to be a an effective arrangement reasonably effective arrangement. But it's one of the only places where we've seen that sort of pairing of capability, sort of heavy fighting forces on the one hand and more traditional peacekeepers in the other to deal with different parts of the problem and variations on that kind of arrangement. It seems to me, you're going to be necessary in a lot more cases than recurrently seeing it, but can the UN also deploy economic and political tools to deal with some of the underlying issues that cause violence to erupt in a place like Mali or even Nigeria to be very precise you're in or the UNH's often. In the official lead of diplomacy through its special representatives of the sector general, etc. But where the UN really has weighed, it's when it seemed to be acting with the support of the permanent members of the scared council so that the UN is kind of a framework through which the United States and France and Britain and Russia and others act. The UN by itself is a particularly powerful entity has power if it's infused with that power by the permanent five. So the political framework for negotiation is often the UN, but it's the power of the key Member States within that that gives it wait, economically. The UN is pretty marginal on these things yet does a lot of development programs. They're pretty flabby to be honest with you, much more significant as the World Bank. The World Bank has a serious problem and how it deals with questions, development and places where there's terrorism, and it's really trying to get his head around how to grapple with that problem. We've begun a dialogue between president Jon Allen and president, Jim Kimball Bank and number of people. On the respective teams to help the Bank through this challenge of how do you do development?.

"Our president. Jon Allen is hard official intelligence and it simply patients for nearly everything in the world. So I know we'll be hearing a lot more about that from you and from other Brookings scholar. So more to come on that, let's switch to the UN it self. As I said, the UN general assembly is happening in September in New York City in one of their genetics is peace. And security can talk about specifically how the UN general simply will be addressing the issues that you raise in the paper. I think the reality is that almost all the substantive issues, sustainable development, climate change security excetera are gonna be overshadowed by just a giant bun fight. The general assembly is a stage doesn't do things. It's a stage which countries project, and I think we're gonna see this year is an awful lot of countries projecting their dissatisfaction with what they see a kind of radical unilateralism of the Trump administration. And you'll see the Trump administration broadcasting. It's sort of firmness in its disdain for forms of multilateral anyway, constrain American sovereignty, not that they meaningfully do. So I think we'll see on awful lot of heat in the rhetoric around the journal somebody. I'm not sure we'll see a lot of light. So the Trump administration is pushing its idea. You know out of radical, you know our lives, but that conflict squarely with the multilateral nature of the nations and other. Able institutions like NATO, how does that conflict play out in the world? I mean, where does it end? This is one of these funny ones where the ideological debate is in a way much sharper than the reality, right? There's almost nothing in the multilateral fear that in any meaningful way constrains American sovereignty. It constrains the sovereignty of other countries that's true. Doesn't constrain American salary any meaningful way. And everybody in the Trump administration knows it. It's just a a point of sort of principle in a way to push back on even the prospect that there could be forms of multilateral some that constrain American sovereignty, fine. That's kind of rhetorical point. Point principle. I don't disagree with the point in principle. I just think it's essentially meaningless and practice, and the reality and practices that in almost every place where we have a concern with terrorism or security of some type or nuclear proliferation. Some part or other of the multilateral system is deployed alongside us trying to solve that problem. So it seems to me. An important part of the agenda should be making sure that those institutions are performing effectively to do that. You have to have a theory of the case. You have to have a strategy. You have to have diplomacy. We can drive a lot of these institutions, but we can't actually reform the buyer sells. We do need a water coalition to do this just in the nature of multilateral itself. Some drive people nuts that you have to actually work with other people in the world to get things done. But you know what you do. You actually have to work with other people in the world to get things done overseas. That's just the nature of rally in the paper. You note that there are fewer peacekeepers. You peacekeepers deployed the seer, the NIST a few years ago. The level today is still higher than it has been, but they're not deployed in the most needed places. So we talk about tools at the United Nations house to address security problems. Peacekeepers is one of them, but they're not necessarily in the places where appears that there needed most, why not? Right. Well, this is a debating point at the sort of fighting point. I've been part of a very small minority of voices arguing that the UN needs. To get serious about the fact that in the places where it's deployed and in the wars were confronting terrorism is an essential part of the problem..
