Global Governance and the UN: An Unfinished Journey

By Thomas G. Weiss; Ramesh Thakur | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Both of us normally write quickly, but we have been struggling with this book for over half a decade. Because “global governance” means so many things to so many analysts, part of our battle was finding a way to make this rather amorphous subject manageable and meaningful. The concept, moreover, covers many topics that are the subject of a book in their own right in United Nations Intellectual History Project, so we had to find a way to distinguish this book from others in the series. After numerous outlines and five complete redrafts, we hope that we have finally found a way to make an original contribution to the study of global governance and to this book series published by Indiana University Press.

In that process, we have accumulated considerable debts of gratitude. On the institutional side, the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) at the University of Waterloo provided substantial funding and research assistance for this book. CIGI thus joins the other UNIHP donors whose understanding and generosity have made this and other volumes possible: the governments of the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Canada, Norway, Switzerland, and Finland and the Republic and Canton of Geneva; the Ford, Rockefeller, and MacArthur foundations; the Carnegie Corporation of New York; and the UN Foundation.

Since 1999, the UNIHP secretariat has benefited from the congenial surroundings of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies at The City University of New York’s Graduate Center. The past and previous presidents, Frances Degen Horowitz and William P. Kelly, have enthusiastically supported these efforts, and on the administrative side, Nancy Okada has helped to ensure the smooth running of a very complicated financial and administrative project with numerous moving parts.

In addition to acknowledging institutional assistance with thanks, we are also grateful to several individuals who provided invaluable help and feedback over the course of writing this volume. First, we should thank two UNIHP directors, Louis Emmerij and Richard Jolly, who kept faith with the authors. Second, we wish to acknowledge Craig Murphy, who along with Louis and Richard valiantly struggled with an earlier, inchoate draft
