As the United Nations moves beyond its fiftieth anniversary into the new millennium, it is faced with a new global system fraught with political and economic tensions that can no longer be handled with models that defined the organization when it was founded in 1945. An innovative vision for a restructuring of the United Nations, this book offers an insider's look at how the UN can respond more effectively to the challenges of the future in an age of globalization.

The former President of South Africa, H.E. Nelson Mandela, states in the Foreword that 'the debate on the reform of the United Nations System must move beyond the costeffectiveness & efficiency issues, to that of relevance'. The President of Malta, H.E. Guido de Marco, a former President of the General Assembly, in the Preface calls for a reform that requires 'not merely tinkering with the institutional set-up of the Organization but rather a reorientation of the principles projected in the Charter so as to enable them to be applied to current realities'. The authors respond by giving a blueprint for a relevant United Nations, more in line with the Charter, emphasizing wider participation in its work, & the supremacy of its General Assembly. This is followed by a vision of a United Nations, supported by an Administrative Committee on Coordination (ACC), transformed into a Policy & Coordination Board (PCB), that would bring out the best in a United Nations System that would include, in addition to the Specialized Agencies, the Bretton Woods Institutions, the World Trade Organization (WTO) & other global, regional & subregional organizations, which share the same objectives of peace, security, & fair & equitable development for all the peoples of the world.

Since the end of the Cold War, conflict prevention and resolution, peacekeeping and peacebuilding have risen to the top of the international agenda. The second edition of this hugely popular text charts the development of the field from its pioneers to its contemporary exponents and offers an assessment of its achievements and the challenges it faces in today′s changed security environment. Existing material has been thoroughly updated and new chapters added on peacebuilding from below, reconciliation, responses to terror, gender issues, the ethics of intervention, dialogue, discourse and disagreement, culture and conflict resolution, and future directions for the field. the authors argue that a new form of cosmopolitan conflict resolution is emerging, which offers a hopeful means for human societies to transcend and celebrate their differences. Part I offers a comprehensive survey of the theory and practice of conflict resolution. Part II enters into the controversies that have surrounded conflict resolution as it has become part of the mainstream. Contemporary Conflict Resolution is essential reading for students of peace and security studies, conflict management and international politics, as well as those working in non–government organizations or think–tanks.

The IUCN Environmental Law Programme (ELP) is proud to present this compilation of thought pieces from experts belonging both to the IUCN Commission on Environmental Law (CEL) and the IUCN Environmental Law Centre, both part of the ELP -- the world's leading environmental law network. The strong involvement of CEL members from North and Southeast Asia and Oceania in the symposium that led to this publication, and in its preparation, is a particularly pleasing feature of this initiative.While we continue to strive towards the improvement of the first generation of environmental laws and their effective implementation, our rapidly changing world also requires us to excite some critical thinking about the second generation of environmental laws. The symposium was an attempt to fuel discussion on what we have achieved with the first generation, what we need to do for the second generation, and how we can bridge these two generations. Through this book we have attempted to capture the provoking thoughts raised during the symposium, which recent developments have validated to be pressing concerns for the world.The articles cover a broad range of issues that are of interest, especially to the Japanese audience for which the symposium was designed, but also to the broader regional and international community. They examine the issues from the national, regional, and international perspectives, and focus not only on State action, but also on the contributions of a regional financial institution, the Asian Development Bank, which has been a staunch supporter of the ELP's capacity building programme in the Asian and Pacific region.

The past two decades have witnessed the end of several civil wars and authoritarian regimes. The global media brings the height of the conflicts to an international audience, but as the wars end and tensions resolve the media turns away, neglecting the often painful and slow process of reconciliation. In this volume, experts with both practical and policy experience in international conflict explore how societies confront and negotiate a repressive past characterized by gross human-rights violations. Grounding readers in theoretical approaches, the book explores contemporary experiences of reconciliation in Africa, Latin America, Europe, and Asia.

The United Nations peacekeeping has evolved as a practical measure for preserving international peace and security. Recent peacekeeping has two important features: the use of force which arguably exceeds self-defence on the one hand, and multifunctional operations on the other. The Security Council has started considering a wide range of factors including serious human rights violations as threats to international peace and security. Recognising the UN's principle to seek peaceful settlement which underlies the legality of peacekeeping, this research focuses on the human rights functions of multifunctional peacekeeping operations. Such functions have immense potential for enhancing conflict resolution through peaceful means. In order to illustrate these issues and the diverse practice of UN peacekeeping, the author of this book has dealt with four detailed case studies on El Salvador, Cambodia, Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia. The achievements, problems and defects experienced by different operations are analysed using the insights of the author's own experience in a peacekeeping operation.
