Albuquerque UN Day Candidate Forum – We Will Be There

HOW SHOULD THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WORK WITH THE UNITED NATIONS TO COMBAT TERRORISM, REDUCE POVERTY, REDUCE ABUSES OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND CONTROL EPIDEMIC INFECTIOUS DISEASES? THE ALBUQUERQUE CHAPTER OF THE UNITED NATIONS ASSOCIATION OF THE USA AND THE UNM WORLD AFFAIRS DELEGATION WILL PRESENT A CANDIDATE FORUM TO ADDRESS USA-UNITED NATIONS ISSUES
Candidates in the primary election races for the US Senate and the House of Representatives have been invited to present their views of United States- United Nations issues. Since the United Nations has so many facets, each participant may select his or her own topic to discuss. However, we suggest concentrating on controversial subjects
such as:
Enlargement of the Security Council
To block a Security Council action, more than one permanent member must cast a veto.
Should the USA become a member state of the International Criminal Court?
Should there be a permanent UN rapid reaction force?
What role is there for the UN in Iraq?

The moderator will be Prof. Mark Peceny, Chair of the Dept. of Political Science at UNM.

Each candidate would speak for 7 minutes. After each has spoken, there would be questions from the audience, from the moderator and from one another.

The date is the evening of Wednesday October 24, 2007 at 7:00PM It will be in Albuquerque at the Albuquerque Mennonite Church, 1300 Girard NE.
The church is one block north of Constitution. (About 8 blocks from the UNM Law School or 500 yards north of Lomas)
The event is open to the public at no charge. Reception/refreshments 6:00-6:45
