Is #UNGA78 Falling Short With Notable Absentees?

The 78th UN General Assembly (UNGA 78) started on Tuesday but with the notable absence of 4 leaders of the permanent security council, is the General Assembly still seen as an effective forum for international peace and security. We speak with Dr Julia Roknifard, Assistant Professor at University of Nottingham Malaysia on the key takeaways and the UN’s role and relevance in this day and age.
