The United Nations at the Millennium provides coverage of each of the principal organs of the UN. Covering the Security Council, the General Assembly, the Secretariat, the Economic and Social Council, the Trusteeship Council and the International Court of Justice, the book provides a survey of the life of each organ since its inception in 1945 and looks at the extent to which it has fulfilled its founding mission. The authors go on to analyse the interaction of each organ with the others in the UN system and to look at proposals for reform. As well as providing comprehensive coverage of the present role of this highly influential organization, the book addresses larger questions about the role of this highly influential organization, the book addresses larger questions about the role of the UN and the fitness for purpose of its principal organs, as a means to global governance.
