International Security Management and the United Nations

Takashi Inoguchi (Editor) Muthiah Alagappa (Editor)
Synopsis What kind of comparative advantage does the United Nations hold in the field of security compared to other states and regional organizations? What kinds of assets does the United Nations have in terms of normative as well as operational capacities that states and regional arrangements lack? What assets does the United Nations possess to effectively deal with security issues? These are some of the questions that International Security Management and the United Nations explores. Since the ability of the United Nations to resolve conflicts depends upon the support of member states, it is imperative to know what states expect from the world body. As a result, this book also explores the following questions: What are the security perspectives of the member states, and especially of the major powers? What kinds of visions do states have for the United Nations in the field of security? How can the United Nations minimize the volatility of member states and their reluctance to give support in the field of security? How is it possible to organize and secure a real and effective partnership between the United Nations and member states regarding conflict prevention and conflict management? At a time when security issues are becoming more complex, this book will be useful both for students and practitioners in the field of international affairs.
