‘A highly commendable book for students and researchers alike, as it
provides a systematically theory-driven analysis of a topic that has been
under-researched until today, but that deserves the attention that it
gets in this work. Indeed, the book shows why and when the role of chairs
should not be underestimated in the U.N. and potentially beyond.’ - Bart Kerremans, Professor of International Relations, University of Leuven, Belgium
‘This is a welcome and important study of chairs’ involvement in the UN negotiation processes. It is especially relevant for an era where multilateralism has thankfully proven to be in the ascendancy once again.’ - Oliver Richmond, Professor of International Relations, University of St Andrews, UK
‘How multilateral negotiations within in international organizations are chaired is an important, yet neglected, topic. Blavoukos and Bourantonis have provided a great service for scholars and practitioners of diplomacy and international relations with this thoughtful and comprehensive investigation of how the chair performs in a variety of cases taken from the UN.’ - Paul Sharp, Professor of Political Science, University of Minnesota, Duluth, USAFrom the Publisher:
This book examines the important role of the chairmanship office in multilateral negotiations within the UN setting. Although chairmanship is a generic feature of international politics, negotiations, and decision-making, it has been scarcely researched. The neutrality and impartiality assumptions that have been long associated with the chair have veiled the chair’s potential in moulding negotiation outcomes.
The authors seek to develop an analytical framework for the systematic study of the chairmanship office and its potential impact on multilateral negotiations. It elaborates on its origins, the parameters and conditions of chair’s effectiveness, and the performance of the chair’s functions. Focusing on the UN, this work seeks to go beyond existing accounts, offering further insights and extending the discussion beyond the Security Council. Without ignoring the pivotal importance of the Security Council, the book broadens the scope of analysis to other significant UN bodies and institutions including ad hoc Working Groups and several Conferences set up for specific international issues.
Evaluating material from a wide range of sources and providing a deeper understanding of UN political dynamics, this work will appeal to scholars of the UN system, international organisations and global governance.
