The United Nations recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. At the top of the agenda was the need to reform and adapt the organization to the post-Cold War period. Numerous proposals were put forward; most failed to secure the required support. Kofi Annan, the Secretary-General of the United Nations has given the highest priority to engaging member states in reassessing the organization and in implementing reform measures in accordance with new-found consensus.;This three-volume set describes 50 reform proposals from within and without the United Nations, and touches on all aspects of the United Nations, and covers a variety of proposals and inititatives. It aims to be of utility to those involved in current efforts in reassessing and reshaping the United Nations, policy makers, researchers and the interested public.
