About this product
- DescriptionWhat exactly is the United Nations? For that matter, why is there still a United Nations at all? In Living with the UN, international legal scholar Kenneth Anderson analyzes US-UN relations in each major aspect of the United Nations' work--security, human rights and universal values, and development--and addresses the crucial question of whether, when, and how the United States should engage or t engage with the United Nations in its many different organs and activities. He looks at each UN organ and function and suggests the form of engagement that the United States should take toward it, giving workable, pragmatic meaning to multilateral engagement across the full range of the United Nations' work.Cutting through the alphabet soup of UN agencies, as well as the utopian idealism that, however ble, often clouds analyses of the United Nations, the book offers principles for a permanent relationship based on ideals and interests between the United States and the United Nations--and provides guidance for long-term US policy that runs far beyond the Obama administration's tenure. Ultimately, Living with the UN offers a vision of a better, but also more modest, United Nations--a vision unlikely to be realized but well worth presenting.
