Our 2018 briefing book, Promoting Peace, Projecting Strength: The U.S. and the UN, highlights what Members of Congress should know about the important work of the UN and how it benefits the United States. From the UN’s efforts to advance peace and security around the world through peacekeeping; to countering violent extremism and supporting global non-proliferation efforts, the UN remains a critical partner for the U.S. as Congress works to protect our national security and foreign policy interests.
