September 15


Is there a global “right to democracy”? Is such a right implied by the existence of the United Nations? By modern international law? By the presence of a multilateral world of ostensible equal states? 

To learn more, join guest speaker Dr. John Moore, emeritus professor of history, California State Polytechnic University at 1 p.m. at the September 15 meeting of the University Club.

The unusual international crises of 2020—and the UN’s 75th anniversary—offer an intriguing moment to examine these and related questions. This talk will try to do just that.

Dr. Moore was faculty advisor for the university’s National Model UN program and director of the Virginia and Douglass Adair Symposia. He has published 14 books, including the Encyclopedia of the United Nations (co-editor) and received many awards for his scholarship and leadership.
