As we begin our readings and study on the United Nations keep in mind the essential questions we have for our systems unit:
1. What should be the responsibilities of international systems of governance?
2. What are the strengths and weaknesses of international systems of governance?
3. How does negotiation and debate play a crucial role in the functioning of international systems?
Think about this: In what ways have you had to deal with systems of governance in your own life – at home, with friends, in groups? How have negotiation and debate helped those systems of governance function properly?
