Problem

National hegemony over United Nations agencies

Other Names:
Domination of the UN by member countries
Nature:
It was reported in 1991, that negotiators from 22 industrial and developing nations had agreed on a "post-cold war" plan that would deprive the traditionally powerful countries of the senior posts they had automatically claimed in the UN. Planners said there was need for a less politicized organization that could respond to global problems and would be run by civil servants loyal to the secretary-general rather than to the governments that posted them to the UN.
Problem Type:
