The Legitimacy of International Organizations

Synopsis

Over the past 50 years, a number of developments in international relations have radically altered the environment in which international organisations operate, particularly the United Nations. These trends include the end of the Cold War, globalisation, the multiplicity of non-governmental organisations, the growing awareness of environmental issues, the emergence of new technologies such as the internet and biotechnology. This book presents the results of a two-year interdisciplinary research project and contains a range of papers that discuss the changing role of international organisations and the challenges they face.
