Title: Power versus principle : United Nations reform in a unipolar world.
Authors: Turner, Samantha.
Keywords: DRNTU::Social sciences
Issue Date: 2006
Abstract: At the end of the Cold War emerged a unipolar world system and renewed optimism for the effectiveness and reform of the United Nations Security Council. Early promise for reform lost momentum in the mid- 1990s as the United States Congress turned away from multilateralism. I examine the tension between power and principle in UN reform and while finding many obstacles to change, I identify possible paths to transformation. I conclude that to ensure its hegemonic status, the United States must commit to UN reform or face reduced legitimacy in the international system.
