From regional conflicts to areas of environmental degradation, the UN's success depends on the way in which three dilemmas are resolved: the tensions between sovereignty and the reality of its erosion, those between demands for global governance and the weakness of UN institutions (as well as the reluctance of states to commit), and those between the need for leadership and the diffusion of power. This book explores these dilemmas in the context of the UN's historical evolution, including its experience of peace-keeping, peace-making, and development sustainability. The authors also consider the roles of various participants in the UN system, from major powers (especially the United States), small and middle powers, coalitions, and non-governmental organizations, to the six secretaries-general. There is also an examination of the need for institutional reforms, and specific proposals for reform.

The United Nations Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative that encourages businesses to support ten universal principles in the areas of human rights, labor standards, the environment, and anti-corruption. It is the world's largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative with more than 7,500 business and non-business participants in over 130 countries. This book reviews the first ten years of the Compact's existence (2000-2010) by presenting exclusively commissioned chapters from well-known scholars, practitioners from the business world and civil society, and Global Compact staff. They reflect on what the Global Compact has achieved, what trends it may have to respond to, and what challenges are ahead. The book contains not only up-to-date reflections but also debates recent changes to the structure of the Compact, including the Communication on Progress policy, the role of Global Compact Local Networks, and the role of emerging specialized initiatives.

In "The Evolution of theory in International Relations", the editor and contributors seek to provide a broad perspective on the evolution of theory and theorizing in the field of international relations. This collection of essay represents a contemporary reassessment of the state of theory within the discipline providing important statements on realist thought, neo-realist theory, structural theory, behaviouralism, formal modelling, and alliances theory. While no single theme dominates the book, the editor points to common concerns that emerge - the value of theory in international relations and its necessity for sustaining the discipline and the relationship between change and continuity and the problem of change in theoretical analysis.

This third edition has been revised to reflect the realities of the post-Cold War period. In addition to providing facts and figures current in mid-1993, it includes new material on: the reshaping of the world order since 1989; international peacekeeping efforts in the Gulf, Yugoslavia, and Somalia; the significance of the Soviet collapse for ethnic nationalism, European security and US-Russian relations; nuclear proliferation; the Earth Summit; sustainable development; Japan's emerging international role; international law and human rights; and refugees and migration. The use of a global-humanist framework to address four interrelated problems - underdevelopment, human rights violations, the arms race, and environmental destruction - remains a key feature of the book, which retains its practical bent, conveying how global politics affects the quality and content of people's lives. Gurtov concludes with a thought-provoking discussion of international security and specific ways that it might be achieved.

An international collection featuring leading scholars which fulfils three goals. First, it explains the advent and significance of the concept of 'International Society'; second, it subjects the concept to theoretical scrutiny, both for its internal coherence and for its applicability more broadly; and third, it tackles crucial contemporary global issues, including: intervention, international security, European institutions, the environmental crisis, secessionism and the norms governing new-state recognition. It is a work of value to anyone interested in the study of international relations and contemporary events.

How profitable is it for world order to transfer the legal and political principles, which sustain order within states to the domain of relations between states? This has been one of the central and most contentious questions in the study of international relations. The term 'domestic analogy' refers to the idea that inter-state relations are amenable to the same type of institutional control as the relations of individuals and groups within states. In this study Dr Suganami discusses the role the domestic analogy has played in proposals about world order, peace, justice and welfare in the period since 1814. As well as analysing the ideas of major writers on international law and relations, Hidemi Suganami examines the creation of the League of Nations, the United Nations and its agencies, and the European Community - all of which have sprung from the domestic analogy. The Domestic Analogy and World Order Proposals makes an important contribution to the history of ideas about world order, exploring how this particular mode of reasoning about international relations has evolved against changing historical backgrounds.

The Law of the Sea (LOS) treaty resuited from some of the most complicated multilateral negotiations ever conducted. Difficult bargaining produced a remarkably sophisticated agreement on the financial aspects of deep ocean mining and on the financing of a new international mining entity. This book analyzes those negotiations along with the abrupt U.S. rejection of their results. Building from this episode, it derives important and subtle general rules and propositions for reaching superior, sustainable agreements in complex bargaining situations. Sebenius shows how agreements were possible among the parties because and not in spite of differences in their values, expectations, and attitudes toward time and risk. He shows how linking separately intractable issues can generate a zone of possible agreement. He analyzes the extensive role of a computer model in the LOS talks. Finally, he argues that in many negotiations neither the issues nor the parties are fixed and develops analytic techniques that predict how the addition or deletion of either issues or parties may affect the process of reaching agreement.

This analysis of governing ideas in US foreign policy aims to show how they arise, are sustained and challenged both domestically and internationally, and become part of the world order. Nolan assesses the problems of reconciling concerns for individual rights and liberal principles with national security interests in US foreign policy over the course of the 20th century. This interpretive survey seeks to redefine the key components in the makeup of US diplomacy and provides reading for students of American government, international relations and US foreign policy, American and world history, defence, and human rights policy. This short history traces the notions that liberty is indivisible and that security depends ultimately on the establishment and success of liberal-democratic norms between and within states. It shows how US policy vacillates between giving active or passive expression to these ideas, always relying on a basic assumption about the presumed pacific character of democracy. Utilising a wide variety of primary and secondary sources, it looks at how these ideas became manifest in two major policy settings: regarding the Soviet Union, and towards the UN. Through these case studies, the book strives to show how these ideas become progressively embedded in US policy; how they have been challenged by different interests and events; how they were disseminated among, and accepted by, allies (and even several former adversaries); and how, as a result, they now permeate the structures of major international organisations, and even underlie the emerging post-Cold War international system as a whole. The conclusion offers a perspective for the future.
