9780415712651: Wartime Origins and the Future United Nations (Global Institutions)

The creation of the UN system during World War II is a largely unknown or forgotten story among contemporary decision makers, international relations specialists, and policy analysts.

This book aims to recover the wartime history of the United Nations and explore how the forgotten past can shed light on a possible and more desirable future. To achieve this, each chapter takes three snapshots:

  • "Then," the imaginative and transnational thinking about solutions to post-war problems demonstrated a realization that victory in WW II required an intergovernmental "system" with enough power and competence to work―that is, the UN was not established as a liberal plaything and public relations ploy but rather as a vital necessity for post-war order and prosperity.

  • "Now," which often seems a pale imitation of wartime thinking that nonetheless reflects a growing and widespread recognition of the fundamental disconnect between the nature of trans-boundary problems and current solutions seen as feasible by 193 UN member states.

  • "Next steps," or the collective wisdom about the range of new thinking and new institutions that, in fact, may well have antecedents in wartime thinking and experimentation and could be labelled blue-prints for a "third generation" of intergovernmental organizations.

This work will be essential reading for all students and scholars of the United Nations, International Organizations and Global Governance.

    Descrizione libro Routledge. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Hardcover. 192 pages. Dimensions: 0.0in. x 0.0in. x 0.0in.The inadequacy of existing political processes for global problem solving goes a long way toward explaining the fitful, tactical, and short-term responses to trans-boundary challenges that require sustained, strategic, and longer-run global perspectives and action. For all its warts, the point of departure for thiswork is the need to renovate the United Nationswhich includes the First UN of member states, the Second UN of international civil servants, and the Third UN of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), external experts, scholars, consultants, the private sector, and committed citizens. A substantial historical precedent with real-world traction for a revamped second generation or the next generation of intergovernmental organization is the founding of the UN system during World War II. This largely unknown or forgotten story is not on the radar screens of contemporary decision-makers and policy analysts or even of most scholars of international relations and law. Each chapter will focus on a distinctive issue that was central not only to wartime planning about a potential post-war world order but also remains so today. While much research has emphasized the ambitious origins of the collective security system that was still born with the onset of the Cold War, this project focuses on lesser-known illustrations whose pertinence for contemporary global governance will be obvious. Each chapter will take three snapshots: Then, the imaginative and transnational thinking about solutions to post-war problems demonstrated a realization that victory in World War II required an intergovernmental system with enough power and competence to workthat is, the United Nations was not established as a liberal plaything and public relations ploy but rather as a vital necessity for post-war order and prosperity. Now, what often seems a pale imitation of wartime thinking nonetheless reflects a growing and widespread recognition of the fundamental disconnect between the nature of trans-boundary problems and feasible solutions involving 193 UN member states. Next steps, or the projects collective wisdom about the range of new thinking and new institutions that, in fact, may well have antecedents in wartime thinking and experimentation and could be labelled blue-prints for a third generation of intergovernmental organizations. This work will be essential reading for all students and scholars of the United Nations, International Organizations and Global Governance. This item ships from multiple locations.
