The challenges facing the United Nations as it takes on the critical global issues of the twenty-first century.
Global power structures are changing. The United States and Europe are losing ground, as countries such as China and India increase their global reach. At the same time that new global players emerge, multinational corporations, global civil society organizations, and international media carve out their own spaces in international affairs. How will these changes impact the legitimacy of the United Nations?
An insider's look at the UN, the book details the problems faced by the United Nations and presents solutions for the organization to remain relevant, legitimate, and action-oriented in the twenty-first century.
Carsten Staur is Denmark's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva and former ambassador to the United Nations in New York.
Co-published by McGill-Queens University Press, Montreal. The book is available for sale in the UK, Ireland and Europe.
