The United Nations System: Toward International Justice

Coperta unu
Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2002 - 335 pagini
"Focusing on legal rather than political issues, White first examines the objectives of the United Nations, not only as defined in the original charter and the constituent documents of its various agencies but also in terms of how its goals and values have been implemented. He then explores its institutional structure, explaining legal powers and relationships; he also evaluates the various bodies in terms of democratic accountability and transparency. In the core of the book - a wide-ranging review of UN activities - he assesses whether the organization has sufficient powers to implement its goals in the key areas of security, justice, human rights, the environment, and economic development."--BOOK JACKET.
