Summary New Millennium, New Perspectives: The United Nations, Security, and Governance analyzes a number of pressing international challenges relating to security and governance in a policy oriented, forward looking manner. The authors address a number of overarching questions - such as the impact of globalization, key challenges in the short and medium terms, the manner in which national governments and the international community might more broadly address the challenges; the comparative advantage enjoyed by the United Nations in working with the international community in addressing the challenges - and find points of commonality in problem solving ethos and methodology. The bases and modalities of security and governance, both within and between societies, are evolving. In parallel, the interconnectedness, and sometimes interdependencies, between security and governance are increasingly understood. It follows, as we consider collective responses to the challenges of security and governance at the international level, that these two subjects should be considered together, in an integrated manner. New Millennium, New Perspectives takes stock of key international trends for security and governance, and considers their implications for the United Nations in the twenty-first century. It embraces a range of issues relating to traditional and non-traditional security, and changing pressures and expectations of governance within and across international borders. Ideas shape and change the world. The authors of this volume tie together the worlds of ideas and policy. They are united in the conviction that academic and policy debates must be integrated if they are to be translated into feasible andrelevant options.
