1945

Foreword

THE 1990s ARE WITHOUT DOUBT an era of dramatic transition and startling contrast. The end of the cold war has encouraged democratization in all parts of the world, but it has also brought increasing national and ethnic strife to many regions. The globalization of economic activity and information has generated untold prosperity and new opportunities, but a growing number of people remain marginalized, mired in chronic, debilitating poverty. The consequences of these and other trends are increasingly felt across national boundaries and require collective action by the international community. More and more in this global age, people and nations are turning to the United Nations, the world’s premier global institution.
