The unheard truth : poverty and human rights by Irene Khan( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 930 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite economic growth in almost every corner of the world over the last decade, billions of people still live in poverty. Amnesty International Secretary General Irene Khan claims that economic analyses do not provide a full picture and economic solutions alone cannot end the problems of poverty. In an argument enriched with her personal experiences and case studies from around the world, Khan sees poverty as the world's worst human rights crisis because it traps people in a vicious cycle of deprivation, insecurity, exclusion, and voicelessness. She argues that the foremost challenge is the empowerment of poor people, and makes a passionate and urgent plea for action to uphold human rights in the fight to end poverty."--Jacket
The fabric of peace in Africa : looking beyond the state by Pamela R Aall( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past two decades, Africa has seen dozens of conflicts over a variety of issues. Responding to these conflicts requires concerted action to manage the crises--the violence, the political discord, and the humanitarian consequences of prolonged fighting. But it is also necessary to rebuild communities, societies and states torn apart by the conflict, addressing the long-term social and economic impact of the conflict. To do so, it is necessary to look at institutions and groups rarely considered in formal official conflict management activities of African and partner governments--schools, universities, religious institutions, media, commercial enterprises, legal institutions, civil society groups, youth, women and migrants. These entities can potentially play an important role in building a sense of identity, fairness, shared norms, and a cohesion between state and society--all critical components of the fabric of peace and security in Africa. This book brings together leading experts from Africa, Europe and North America to examine these critical social institutions and groups and identify how they can either build or impede peaceful resolution of conflicts and commitment to common purpose. This book will open new doors of understanding for students, scholars and practitioners focused on bringing strengthening peace in Africa."--
We the peoples : a UN for the 21st century by Kofi A Annan( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his time as Secretary-General of the UN, Kofi Annan played a decisive role in launching the Millennium Development Goals, establishing the International Criminal Court, and articulating the Responsibility to Protect as a guiding principle for international action. In 2001 - just after the attacks of 9/11 - he and the UN jointly received the Nobel Peace Prize for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world. These and other crucial events - including the crises over Kosovo and East Timor, and the war in Iraq - are encapsulated in this book of Kofi Annan's key speeches throughout his term of office. Covering subjects from development, health, and climate change to the prevention of genocide and the ideal of diversity, these statements show how deeply involved the UN was in important issues of the era.--From book jacket

Prevention of armed conflict : report of the Secretary-General by United Nations( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report looks at the progress that has been achieved in developing the conflict prevention capacity of the United Nations. It also provides recommendations on how efforts of the United Nations system in this field could be further enhanced, with the cooperation and active involvement of Member States, who ultimately have primary responsibility for conflict prevention. It stresses that conflict prevention lies at the heart of the mandate of the United Nations in the maintenance of international peace and security, and that a general consensus is emerging among member states that comprehensive and coherent conflict prevention strategies offer the greatest potential for promoting lasting peace and creating an enabling environment for sustainable development.--Publisher's description
State of the world 2002 : a Worldwatch Institute report on progress toward a sustainable society by Worldwatch Institute( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In preparation for the World Summit on Sustainable Development in September 2002 in Johannesburg, South Africa, State of the World 2002 evaluates what has been achieved since the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio. Ten years ago, the leaders of the world produced a plan to begin creating a sustainable global economy, one that meets human needs while protecting and restoring the natural environment. How much progress has the world made toward that goal? With State of the World 2002 as your guide, you will learn about the problems facing the delegates in Johannesburg as they try to answer this question--from today's severe inequalities of wealth and income (1.2 billion people live on $1 a day or less) to environmental threats such as climate change, growing numbers of tourists in fragile areas, and the proliferation of toxic chemicals. The authors also shed light on the possibilities for change and how existing technologies and resources can help solve many of our most pressing problems. Using renewables like wind power, the energy economy can be converted from oil to hydrogen. Poor farmers can grow more food by taking advantage of "free" biological services, like nitrogen-fixing plants and beneficial insects. And women can have fewer children when they have a chance to get an education and to act on their own decisions on when to have children. State of the World 2002 spells out priorities for the Johannesburg Summit in seven key areas: agriculture, energy policy and climate change, chemicals, international tourism, population growth, resource-based conflicts, and global governance. Decisions made today can make all the difference in our efforts to build a more stable and secure world in the future."--Provided by publisher
Pandemic : facing AIDS by Kofi A Annan( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pandemic: Facing AIDS presents images of the forty-two million women, children, and men around the world who live with the disease that defines this century. It presents the scope of the pandemic, the different cultural and national responses to it, and it puts a human face on the disease of a severity not seen since the Bubonic Plague in the fourteenth century. An overview of the global strategy to address the problem that has killed twenty-five million people worldwide, it includes images of AIDS that have themselves been part of the defining face of the disease. In 2002 alone, over five million people were newly infected, and at the dawn of a new millennium, AIDS threatens political and economic stability globally, hindering development and causing terrible human suffering. But there have been victories, and more are possible. Countries like Uganda have encouraged education and outreach which have markedly dropped the rate of infection and improved life for those already infected. Thailand has sponsored information and care for women and children that has helped stem the tide. Brazil has advocated strongly for affordable pharmaceutical and health treatment for its citizens. With education and resources, the world's AIDS crisis is solvable - if the will to do so is there."--BOOK JACKET

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question of intervention has become a debatable subject because of the respect for sovereignty of states as dictated by the UN Charter.

Lamentation 9/11 by E. L Doctorow( Book )

Against elections : the case for democracy by David Van Reybrouck( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Without drastic adjustment, this system cannot last much longer," writes Van Reybrouck. "If you look at the decline in voter turnout and party membership, and at the way politicians are held in contempt, if you look at how difficult it is to form governments, how little they can do and how harshly they are punished for it, if you look at how quickly populism, technocracy and anti-parliamentarianism are rising, if you look at how more and more citizens are longing for participation and how quickly that desire can tip over into frustration, then you realize we are up to our necks." Not so very long ago, the great battles of democracy were fought for the right to vote. Now, Van Reybrouck writes, "it's all about the right to speak, but in essence it's the same battle, the battle for political emancipation and for democratic participation. We must decolonize democracy. We must democratize democracy." As history, Van Reybrouck makes the compelling argument that modern democracy was designed as much to preserve the rights of the powerful and keep the masses in line, as to give the populace a voice. As change-agent, Against Elections makes the argument that there are forms of government, what he terms sortitive or deliberative democracy, that are beginning to be practiced around the world, and can be the remedy we seek. In Iceland, for example, deliberative democracy was used to write the new constitution. A group of people were chosen by lot, educated in the subject at hand, and then were able to decide what was best, arguably, far better than politicians would have. A fascinating, and workable idea has led to a timely book to remind us that our system of government is a flexible instrument, one that the people have the power to change"--
Would the world be better without the UN? by Thomas G Weiss( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do we need the United Nations? Would the contemporary world be without its largest intergovernmental organization? And where might it be had the UN's member states and staff performed better? These fundamental questions are explored in this hard-hitting, authoritative book by the leading analyst of UN history and politics, Thomas G. Weiss. While counterfactuals are often dismissed as academic contrivances, they can serve to focus the mind; and, here, Weiss uses them ably to demonstrate the pluses and minuses of multilateral cooperation. He is not shy about UN achievements and failures drawn from its ideas and operatiosn in its three substantive pillars of activities: international peace and security; human rights and humanitarian action; and sustainable development. But, he argues, the inward-looking and populist movements in electoral politics worldwide make robust multilateralism more, not less, compelling. The selection of António Guterres as the ninth UN secretary-general shoudl rekindle critical thinking about the potential for international cooperation. There is a desperate need to reinvigorate and update rather than jettison the UN in responding to threats from climate change to pandemcis, from proliferation to terrorism. Weiss tells you why and how--back cover

We the children : meeting the promises of the World Summit for Children by Kofi A Annan( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This abridged version of the Secretary-General's report to the United Nations General Assembly's Special Session on Children details the achievements of the 1990 World Summit for Children. Nearly 150 countries provided national progress reports of their implementation of goals set forth in the Summit and the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child. The first part of the report, First Call for Children, provides an overview of successes throughout the 1990s and areas of continued concern. The Secretary-General acknowledges net progress for children, despite unfinished business and new challenges. Some areas of disappointment are the growth of hiv/aids and the enlarged gap in per capita income between industrialized and developing countries. Failure to achieve many goals of the Summit can be attributed to insufficient financial commitment from developing countries and donors. The second and largest part of the report details progress in implementing the World Summit declaration. This part has three subsections: (1) Health, Nutrition, Water and Sanitation; (2) Education and Literacy; and (3) Children's Protection and Civil Rights. Health topics include women's health, hiv/aids, policy strategies, and future actions. Education includes not only primary, secondary, and vocational education but also child labor, adult literacy and life skills. The section on children's protection consists of Role of the Family, Civil Rights and Freedoms, and Special Protection Measures, including child labor, children in armed conflict, and sexual abuse and exploitation. The reports final part deals with perspectives for the future. This part explains lessons learned from the past decade, such as the need for broad human rights, accountable government, and empowerment of all people in order to improve the lives of children. The report concludes with a reminder that the international community has the resources, understanding, and experience to build a world fit for children and the irrefutable obligation to do so. (Kk)

La Charte des Nations Unies : commentaire, article par article by Nazioni Unite( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Signée le 26 juin 1945, entrée en vigueur le 24 octobre suivant, la Charte des Nations Unies a 60 ans. Si les résultats sont, à l'évidence, en deçà des espérances, l'action des États, la firme propre des institutions, la souplesse du texte, ont permis aux Nations Unies de s'adapter aux exigences changeantes des relations internationales en dépit des mutations considérables qui ont marqué, ces 60 dernières années: guerre froide, décolonisation, recherche d'un développement durable, menaces nucléaire et du terrorisme ... Cette remarquable faculté d'adaptation, le miracle permanent que constitue l'existence même de l'Organisation, l'influence qu'elle continue d'exercer en dépit des tentations de l'unilatéralisme, justifient une étude d'ensemble de la Charte, dans une perspective juridique, à la lumière de la pratique. Sous la direction de Jean-Pierre Cot et Alain Pellet, 129 juristes - parmi lesquels 3 anciens Présidents, le Vice-Président et 2 juges à la Cour internationale de Justice, plusieurs ministres ou anciens ministres, de nombreux fonctionnaires internationaux ou diplomates familiers des Nations Unies, des membres de la Commission du Droit international et une pléiade d'universitaires et de chercheurs - venant de 24 pays, mais tous francophones et se réclamant de la tradition juridique latine, ont uni leurs efforts pour faire le point des connaissances actuelles sur les Nations Unies. Comme les deux éditions précédentes, celle-ci se présente sous la forme d'un commentaire article par article, soigneusement mis à jour; mais elle a été enrichie de contributions abordant des sujets transversaux qui ne trouvent pas place dans le commentaire d'une disposition déterminée."--Page 4 of cover
