Reforming the United Nations: Achievements and Shortcomings

  • W. Andy Knight


The fiftieth anniversary of the United Nations was heralded with great fanfare and celebrated by more than 140 heads of State and other leaders in New York on 24 October 1995. This major milestone provided the opportunity for state leaders, practitioners and academics to reflect, specifically, on the organisation’s past half century and on the evolution of multilateralism more generally. It also provided a forum for re-defining the challenges facing humanity and for speculating about what changes will be necessary for the UN system to become a relevant, efficient and effective instrument of global governance in the coming millennium.
