This article sets out to describe the evolution of debate within & about the UN since the end of the Cold War, when the principles of consent, impartiality & non-use of force except in self-defense were thrown into question by a changing security environment. The central argument is that, taken together, the reports chart a politically feasible & useful path to reform, but we have a long way to go before achieving even the modest vision they contain. The development of UN doctrine for contemporary operations remains unfinished business & significant growth in capacity is needed to counter the acute strain under which they are operating. The article concludes by highlighting a number of priority reforms that need to be implemented now. References. Adapted from the source document.
