The world is a difficult place to manage. Global power structures are changing. The United States and Europe are losing ground, as emerging economies like China and India increase their global reach. At the same time new global players carve out their own space, as businesses, cities and local communities, and civil society call for a stronger voice in international affairs. How will these changes impact the legitimacy of the United Nations?

This book offers an insider’s look at the UN given by Carsten Staur, Denmark’s ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva and former ambassador to the United Nations in New York. "Shared Responsibility" details the problems faced by the United Nations and presents solutions for the organization to remain relevant, legitimate, and action-oriented in the twenty-first century.

Co-published by McGill-Queens University Press, Montreal. The book is available for sale in the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Translated by Steven Harris.
