Can the United Nations Be Reformed ?

The structure and operation of the United Nations have not changed
for fifty years, although the period has witnessed the end of the Cold
War and a redistribution of powers within the family of nations in the
context of globalization. A drastic reform is necessary. The main obstacles
for such a reform come from the North-South divide. The rich
nations tend to see the UNO as an extension of their own foreign
policy. In addition, since the end of the Cold War, the United States
has become the sole superpower. On the other hand, the Third World
developing countries demand a democratization of the UN and the
taking into account of their own expectations in terms of development
and assistance. One must imagine a United Nations Organization able
to satisfy the needs of mankind, to encourage a renewed North-South
dialogue, and to create the conditions of a democratization of the globalization
process before this process distorts democracy.
