The 70th anniversary of the signing and entry into force of the UN Charter should call attention to the historical underpinnings of contemporary global governance. Unfortunately, today’s fashion of “good-enough” global governance abandons the strategy of constructing robust intergovernmental organizations; and it is dramatically inadequate to guarantee dignified human survival, especially because our forebears did much better. Insights from 1942 to 1945 remain valid for addressing 21st-century global challenges. But do we have the wit and will to do what is necessary without a global catastrophe? Thomas G. Weiss, Presidential Professor of Political Science at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, will address why  “’Good Enough’ Global Governance Ain’t Good Enough.”
