We are pleased to announce that the 2016 Friends of ACUNS Biennial Book Award has been awarded to Sebastian von Einsiedel, David M. Malone, and Bruno Stagno Ugarte for their book on 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. Reflecting this new environment, The UN Security Council in the 21st Century provides a comprehensive view of the council’s internal dynamics, its role and relevance in world politics, and its performance in addressing today’s major security challenges.
