Preparing the UN Council for the New Millennium: Renaissance on the East River?
Long paralyzed by ideological differences and now faced with deciding among the endless options co-operation might make possible, it is clear that since 1989 the United Nations Security Council traded the “inability of stability” during the Cold War for the “importunity of opportunity.” And it seems that some options involve endless problems, whether there is co-operation or not. The new opportunities are not all bad news, but there is clearly no shortage of it. The challenge is for the Security Council to step back from the crises of the moment and identify what can be done, separate from that what should be done, and avoid making what can’t be done worse.
