The UN Security Council in the 21st Century

After grappling for two decades with the realities of the post-Cold War era, the UN Security Council must now meet the challenges of a resurgence of great power rivalry amid a context of rising crises. Reflecting this new environment, The UN Security Council in the 21st Century provides a comprehensive look at the Security Council today, exploring key themes and drivers in its decision making, its internal dynamics, its role and relevance in world politics, and its performance in addressing today’s major security challenges.

The UN Security Council in the 21st Century covers a wide range of topics and country cases, providing both historical analysis and contemporary insight. A set of ten case studies assess some major Security Council-mandated peace operations and provide concrete examples of the cross-cutting approach the volume adopts. Encyclopedic in scope, this book features contributions by leading scholars on the Security Council as well as key practitioners.
