Intergovernmental Negotiations and Decision Making at the United Nations: A Guide
The second edition of NGLS’s popular Intergovernmental Negotiations and Decision Making at the United Nations: A Guide explains the governance and decision-making fora and processes of the UN system. The first part explains the principal UN organs of intergovernmental decision making; the negotiating blocs of Member States at the UN; the various types of documentation; and the nature of UN decisions and the weight they carry internationally. This updated second edition includes information on new UN bodies and processes following on from the outcomes of the 2005 World Summit. The second part provides practical knowledge, advice and guidance to non-governmental representatives who wish to engage with the UN system, ranging from accreditation to the preparatory process, to engaging in follow-up activities after a meeting.
