The United Nations and Changing World Politics

Synopsis

Providing a comprehensive and contemporary examination of the United Nations, the authors provide a thematic approach exploring its role in three core issues in international relations: International Peace and Security; Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs; and Building Peace Through Sustainable Development. Historically informed and analytically rich, The United Nations and Changing World Politics introduces the reader to the opportunities and limits of the central international organization. The authors bring to bear both extensive practical experience and scholarly depth in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the UN's performance, as well as providing practical suggestions for improvements. Thoroughly updated to take into account recent experiences, including the Balkan crises, this book is an important resource for readers interested in international relations, peace and war, third world development, and human rights.
