    From Democracy to Conflict: The UN's Search for Peace and Security
  • Autore: Smith, Adam M
  • Note di contenuto: Argues that the primary mission of the UN has changed from its post-Cold War goal of fostering democratic development to conflict prevention. The reasons the UN chose the goal of democratic development in the midst of other global problems of equal magnitude, including the HIV/AIDS plague, environmental degradation, & poverty, are explored. It is even more puzzling why it turned from democratization, which had been the most successful endeavor the UN had undertaken & during which scores of countries opted for democracy, to undertake the prevention of conflicts, the success of which is difficult to achieve & even harder to recognize. The author argues that before the UN efforts at conflict prevention stain it as an ineffective or irrelevant organization, it should redirect its efforts to reducing poverty, a goal that would actually reduce conflict & increase peace & security. 9 References.
