The world has changed radically since the UN took shape at the end of the |
World War II, almost sixty years ago. It is these changes that UN Secretary-General
Kofi Annan now wants to give more recognition to through his proposals for
the most wide-ranging reforms of the UN since 1945.
In reality, he came up with a recipe for a new world, where human rights,
the battle against hunger and poverty and arms control will have a much
more prominent place in the UN. A lot of work and detailed analysis are
behind the proposals. Like all wise policies, they took into account today's
realities. And they seek a balance between the benefits such reforms would
have for various groups of countries: in industrialized countries hit by
terrorism and in developing countries that are still fighting basic poverty.
