In the 1990s the UN's potential has been reborn. Now the world must find ways to incorporate elements of that success into the UN system. No single reform or even expansion of UN military power can achieve the necessary changes; rather a series of political and military innovations are needed soon to develop a UN peace and security system. The authors make specific recommendations in the areas of the Security Council, the Military Staff Committee, the Secretary General and the Secretariat, operational elements, regional security arrangements, and financial resources. Co-published with the International Economic Studies Institute.
