While the role of the United Nations in world affairs is the subject of much debate and research, little empirical evidence exists regarding the effectiveness of the work of the United Nations in the economic and social fields. The purpose of 'Development Cooperation in Practice: The United Nations Volunteers in Nepa'l is to start filling the gap created by the lack of in-depth assessments of the achievements and performance of the UN in these fields. The author focuses on one particular UN programme, the UN Volunteers programme in Nepal, over a ten-year period (1987-96).

Reviews the experience of 6 nations with budget surpluses (BS) in 1999 -- Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, and the U.K. Determines how these nations achieved BS, used BS to address long-term budgetary pressures, and adapted their budget processes once BS were achieved.

This book on France's participation in peacekeeping operations features contributions from a scholar of politics, a law professor, and a military general. Marie-Claude Smouts subtly situates French attitudes towards peacekeeping operations; Yves Daudet analyzes peacekeeping operations' legal aspects and the problems raised by parliamentary control over their finances. The analysis is completed by Gen. Philippe Morillon, who as commander of UNPROFOR from 1992-1993 knew Srebrenica before that town met its tragic fate. These different perspectives illuminate the dedicated French involvement in Un
