The lecture explains the relationship between Israel and the United Nations, drawing also upon recently uncovered archival materials. It concludes with a brief vision into the future, based upon the changing nature of current international affairs, as per the shift from a mono-polar world to a multi-polar one, and the recent demise of the prohibition over the use of force in international affairs.

Welcomed over seventy years ago into the United Nations, which signed off on its own creation as a 'Jewish State', Israel's relations with the UN are marked by a measure of disproportionate attention towards it in comparison to virtually all other states. A possible explanation for this disproportionate attention, explored in this lecture, posits that Israel's conflict with the Arab world served as the key "laboratory" for the UN's own formulation of its own organizational heritage and institutional development.
