The decision of the authors to write a book on the new system of administration of justice at the United Nations is timely and well-taken. As the Organization continues to pursue a process of change to strengthen its ability to meet new demands and deliver its vital services in the most effective and efficient ways, the authors of this volume provide a thoughtful account of how committed actors have worked together within the context of the United Nations’ intricate governance structure to successfully achieve needed reform. In 2008, the United Nations General Assembly established an independent, transparent, professionalized, adequately resourced and decentralized system of administration of justice. While the system remains in constant evolution, it has already significantly improved both the informal and formal processes for dispute resolution. In better reflecting the way the Organization has changed in recent decades and better internalizing the values promoted by the United Nations, the system sets a milestone and a good practice model for all other reform efforts.
