From Global Apartheid to Global Village: Africa and the United Nations

From Global Apartheid to Global Village: Africa and the United Nations
(Book Number 9)

This CCR book represents the first comprehensive attempt to examine the role of the United Nations in Africa over the last six decades. The contributions are from eminent pan-African scholars and policy intellectuals, most of whom have had practical first-hand experience with the world body. They examine 'global apartheid' — the inequitable power relations between the rich North and poor South — in three important areas: the politics within the UN's principal organs; peacekeeping and human rights; and socio-economic development, centred on the efforts of sixteen UN agencies, programmes and funds. This is a unique volume on the role of the world's most important multilateral body on its most impoverished continent.
