Preferred Futures for the United Nations
Edited by Saul H. Mendlovitz, Burns H. Weston
The authors here discern a “humane” impulse rising against the prevailing tendencies of market-driven opportunism-an impulse rapidly becoming manifest in international law. With focus on the United Nations and the norms, processes, and institutions with which it responds to militarism and war, poverty and maldevelopment, ecological imbalance, social justice, and alienation, they suggest workable initiatives and procedures through which relevant United Nations agencies might be reformed and/or transformed to effectively meet the new challenges of the next century.
