Produktbeschreibung
The UN celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2015. In the Volume Reforming the UN: A Chronology by Joachim Müller an exciting story is told describing the evolution of the UN through the main change initiatives applied by each Secretary-General, characterized by political confrontations, crises of confidence and organizational constraints. Initiatives included approving the Sustainable Development Goals, strengthening peacekeeping, enlarging the Security Council, establishing mechanisms to protect human rights, improving aid efficiency, and reforming management practices. This story is completed by a Chronology of Reform Events to enhance the transparency of parallel, multi-layer reform tracks. Lessons learned highlight the main drivers of changes, the interests and constraints, and the dynamics of the reform process: valuable insight for capitalizing on future change opportunities.

Rezensionen
"'Everything you ever wanted to know about UN reform and more' could be the subtitle of the book. To my knowledge, this is the first complete chronology of the UN reform efforts since its foundation in 1945. Joachim Müller, a long-time UN practitioner and one of the UN's few intellectual historians, presents a mine of information."
-Michael Platzer, Liaison Officer for the Academic Council on the United Nations and Chair Vienna NGO Alliance for Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Rather than prescribing what should be done, Müller conceptualizes and analyses the dynamics of the UN reform process. Such insight is necessary to understand, develop and implement reform initiatives, which is currently a high priority for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. Müller's book can be regarded as a golden source of information for academic studies in the areas of modern history, political science and international law. It also offers journalists the opportunity to dig thoroughly into any subject of UN-related political interest. May intensive use be made of it and may it have a follow-up in the future.
