The United Nations and transnational corporations: A review and a perspective

The volume, The UN and Transnational Corporations: From Code of Conduct to Global Compact, by Tagi Sagafi-Nejad (in collaboration with John H. Dunning), originates in an extraordinarily important endeavour – the creation of an intellectual history of the role of the United Nations in helping to shape global governance in the second half of the twentieth century and the beginning of the current millennium. The work of the United Nations can be divided into two broad categories: promoting economic and social development, and enhancing regional and international security. Within the former sphere, this book presents the record of the United Nations Commission on Transnational Corporations, the United Nations Centre on Transnational Corporations (UNCTC), and the ultimate shift of TNC-related activities within the United Nations system from New York to United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Geneva.
