It also includes a collection of thematic chapters that examine key issues such as major trends of peace operations, the link between peacekeeping, humanitarian interventions and the responsibility to protect, peacekeeping and international law, the UN's inter-organizational partnerships and how to evaluate success or failure. l This handbook brings together leading scholars and senior practitioners in order to provide a comprehensive assessment of the successes, failures and lessons learned of UN peacekeeping since 1948.

This volume results from a high-level research symposium that was organized on 21 October 2010 by the NATO Defense College, New York University's Center on International Cooperation, and the Turkish delegation to the United Nations (UN). The event was an opportunity for policymakers and researchers to bring together their insights on the achievements and the prospects of UN-NATO cooperation, more than two years after the signing of a Joint Declaration by the Secretaries-General of the UN and NATO on 23 September 2008. The main conclusion from the proceedings of the symposium was that the UN and NATO are necessary partners in tackling today's and tomorrow's security challenges and that is widely recognized by both organizations, despite the various challenges that UN-NATO cooperation faces.

From Empire to Community

Whether one favors the U.S. global projection of force or is horrified by it, the question stands - where do we go from here? What ought to be the new global architecture? Amitai Etzioni follows a third way, drawing on both neoconservative and liberal ideas, in this bold new look at international relations. He argues that a "clash of civilizations" can be avoided and that the new world order need not look like America. Eastern values, including spirituality and moderate Islam, have a legitimate place in the evolving global public philosophy. Nation-states, Etzioni argues, can no longer attend to rising transnational problems, from SARS to trade in sex slaves to cybercrime. Global civil society does help, but without some kind of global authority, transnational problems will overwhelm us. The building blocks of this new order can be found in the war against terrorism, multilateral attempts at deproliferation, humanitarian interventions and new supranational institutions (e.g., the governance of the Internet). Basic safety, human rights, and global social issues, such as environmental protection, are best solved cooperatively, and Etzioni explores ways of creating global authorities robust enough to handle these issues as he outlines the journey from "empire to community."
