About this item

This volume illustrates the evolution of the United Nations through key reform initiatives applied by each Secretary-General from the 1940s to 2015. The first section consists of a summary of the main reform initiatives, organized by the terms of office of each Secretary-General, with information on what prompted them, the interests and constraints, the dynamics of the process, and what change occurred. They include approving the Sustainable Development Goals, strengthening peacekeeping, enlarging the Security Council, establishing mechanisms to protect human rights, improving aid efficiency, and reforming management practices. The bulk of the book consists of a chronology of the main change events, such as the establishment of expert groups, release of reform proposals, and decisions on reform proposals. Also provided is an introduction to the structure of the UN, reform documents, the Charter of the UN, and other supporting information. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
