For this meeting, we'll discuss:

1) the founding of the United Nations; and

2) the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (circa Dec. 1948)

To that end, we'll discuss and analyze each of its three distinct components: Law, History and Politics.

The Premise:
In the previous episode of LHP, World War II had just ended (https://www.meetup.co...). Various international tribunals were formed, adjudicating the "crimes against humanity" of the recently-defeated Axis powers. The rise and fall of "nationalism" during the early part of the Twentieth Century -- giving rise to the bloodiest conflict in human history -- has now given way to grand reconstruction efforts, by way of the Marshal Plan and the formation of the United Nations.

Here are the discussion topics:

I. Law

The Charter of the United Nations
