Review of “A Concise Encyclopedia of the United Nations”

According to “Introduction to Research in International Law”(see Further Reading) this dictionary of international law is an English edition of the German “Lexikon der Vereinten Nationen”and provides “concise and comprehensive information not only about the structure of the UN system, its goals and functions, but about recent developments and reform efforts in the face of global opportunities and challenges. The contributing authors are academic scholars of international law, economics and political sciences; active and former diplomats and UN officials; journalists and members of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and offer
a variety of interesting perspectives. The entries are provided with Internet addresses for further information and are supplemented in the annex with a trilingual list (English-French-German) of the most important institutions and items of the official terminology and a list of information facilities concerning the UN.”
