Now in its ninth year, the Max Planck Yearbook of United Nations Law has become a much sought after forum for essays in international law related to the UN. Volume 9 (2005) reflects the outcome of an expert meeting discussing possible models for the legal reconstruction of post conflict societies by the international community. Contributors analyse experience gained under the authority of the League of Nations as well as the United Nations in countries and territories such as West-Irian, Cambodia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, East Timor, Afghanistan and Somalia. Special attention is paid to fundamental questions in this area, such as conceptual differences between "nation building" and "state building," as well as the situation in Iraq after the military intervention by the Coalition in 2003-- This Volume is therefore again a must for any academic or practitioner involved in international questions concerning the United Nations. In addition the Volume comprises some reviews of books on the United Nations and related topics. For more information on this yearbook please visit the website of the Max Planck Institute
