Joachim Müller and Karl Sauvant (Eds.)

With the publication of the 2010/2011 edition and going forward, the ARUNA series will be enhanced by the inclusion of six new introductory articles written by expert contributors: Alexander K. A. Greenawalt (Associate Professor of Law, Pace University School of Law), Khalil A. Hamdani (Ph.D., former Director of the Division on Investment, Technology and Enterprise Development of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), Hannelore Hoppe (Director and Deputy to the High Representative in the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs), and John R. Mathiason (Professor of International Relations, Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University).

Readers will find that the detailed commentary of the new introductory articles will offer invaluable guidance on the year’s developments in the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the International Court of Justice and Tribunals, the Secretariat, and the Peacekeeping and Peace-building Missions. The 2010/2011 edition also
proudly features a Foreword by former UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali. The Need for Immediate Responses and Strategic Thinking highlights the developing role of the UN as it faces new challenges relating to state sovereignty, democratization, and human rights, many of which have moved to the forefront during the “Arab Spring.”
