Abstract:

Boutros-Ghali proclaimed in 1996 that the Secretary-General is `an impartial figure with a global mandate'. This was reminiscent of those in 1945 who heralded the `international leadership' of that Office. Can the Secretary-General guide the United Nations as it seeks to adapt to demands and circumstances quite different to those which existed at its inception, and address the widening agenda of peace and security? Or is the Office inevitably an adjunct of narrow Great Power manoeuvring? This book examines the evolving peace and security activities of the United Nations Secretary-General in the context of developments in international politics. The frustrations and opportunities - and controversy - which the Office has experienced in the transition to the post-Cold War world reflect the volatility and uncertainties of the UN in a changing world. The Secretary-General's activities in the 1990s also reflect a development of the international civil service beyond the classical model.

"This book examines the evolving peace and security activities of the United Nations Secretary-General in the context of developments in international politics."--Jacket.
