The Motion put was The United Nations is terminally paralysed: the democratic world needs a forum of its own

Speakers for the motion:

-- Robert Kagan Senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and expert in U.S. national security and foreign policy. He served in the State Department from 1984 to 1988 as a member of the Policy Planning Staff, as principal speechwriter for Secretary of State George P. Shultz. He is listed as one of the world's "Top 100 Public Intellectuals" by Foreign Policy and Prospect magazines. Dr. Kagan writes a monthly column on world affairs for the Washington Post, and is a contributing editor at both the Weekly Standard and the New Republic. His most recent book is The Return of History and the End of Dreams.

-- Radek Sikorski Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs who in August 2008 signed a missile defence agreement with Condoleeza Rice, the US Secretary of State. Born in Poland, he came to Great Britain as a political refugee in 1981, graduated from Oxford University and became a freelance war reporter. From 2002 to 2005 he was a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington D.C. and Executive Director of the New Atlantic Initiative. He was Polish Minister of Defence from 2005 to 2007.

-- Denis Macshane MP Minister of State for Europe at the Foreign Office from 2002 to 2005. He remains on the Council of Europe and is a member of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. In 2005 he became a signatory of the Henry Jackson Society principles, advocating a proactive approach to the spread of liberal democracy across the world, including by military intervention.

Speakers against the motion:

-- Sir Jeremy Greenstock Former UK Permanent Representative at the United Nations in New York (1998-2003) and UK Special Envoy for Iraq (September 2003-March 2004). The two themes of his diplomatic career were the Middle East and US/Western European Relations, and he spent a total of ten years in Washington and New York on US and transatlantic business. Since 2004 Sir Jeremy has been Director of the Ditchley Foundation, the Conference Centre in Oxfordshire which focuses on international policy issues. He also works as a Special Adviser to the BP Group.

-- The Rt Hon Lord Malloch-Brown Mark Malloch-Brown was appointed the Minister for Africa, Asia and the UN attending Cabinet in June 2007. He served as Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations from April to December 2006. After stepping down from the UN, he briefly took up the roles of Vice Chairman of Soros Fund Management and of the Open Society Institute. Before the UN, he worked at the World Bank serving as Vice-President for External Affairs and Vice-President for United Nations Affairs from 1996 to 1999.

-- Shashi Tharoor Enjoyed a career of nearly 29 years with the United Nations, including working for refugees in South-East Asia at the peak of the "boat people" crisis, handling peace-keeping operations in the former Yugoslavia, and culminating in 2007 as the Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information. In 2006, he was India's candidate to succeed Kofi Annan as UN Secretary-General, and emerged a strong second out of seven contenders. He is a prize-winning author of ten books, both fiction and non-fiction, and is a widely-published critic, commentator and columnist.

The event was chaired by Zeinab Badawi.

Transcoded from webrip to a slightly higher spec. The original was a low resolution BBC download suitable for portable devices as well as PC screens. It is unlikely to display well on a huge plasma screen! These programmes can also equally well just be listened to as audio without watching the video.
