Book Launch – A United Nations Renaissance: What the UN is, and what it could be

February 9, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm


John Trent and Laura Schnurr will launch their new book, titled “A United Nations Renaissance: What the UN is, and what it could be” on February 9, 2018.

They have been busy writing a book over the past couple years — it’s a small book about a big topic! In a nutshell, it’s about how we can better manage the big global issues of our time, such as climate change, terrorism, sustainable development and human rights. The United Nations is well-placed for this, but the book explores the major changes required for it to be capable of effectively governing the world.


Here’s what others have said about the book:

“This book makes clear why this is such an important cause for our time. And its focus on mobilizing young people to the cause is a worthy recommendation.”
 Lloyd Axworthy, Past President, University of Winnipeg, former Foreign Minister of Canada

“A concise, crystal clear, superbly informed explanation of how the United Nations works – and why it matters.”
– Michael Byers, Canada Research Chair in Global Politics and International Law, University of British Columbia

“Trent and Schnurr provide a persuasive and user-friendly introduction for a new generation of change-makers.”
– Thomas G. Weiss, Presidential Professor of Political Science, The CUNY Graduate Center, Past President International Studies Association
