The fiftieth anniversary of the United international locations enterprise is venerated in 1995.

Cooperation of the perma­ nent contributors of the UN protection Council used to be the fundamental section of the effi­ ciency of submit -war procedure of overseas peace and defense. except this major undertaking, the founding fathers of the United international locations declared their choice "to reaffirm religion in basic human rights, within the dignity and value of the human individual, within the equivalent rights of fellows and ladies and of countries huge and small, and to set up stipulations below which justice and appreciate for the tasks bobbing up from treaties and different assets of foreign legislation may be maintained, and to advertise social prog­ ress and higher criteria of existence in higher freedom" (preamble, UN Charter).

We may judge this a salutary development. No longer does it seem a sufficient one. 44 In further assessing the pertinence of the functional approach, examine briefly three innovations proposed for meeting challenges to United Nations efforts within a globe of fractious villages. First, a standing UN force of volunteers could, according to distinguished proponent Brian Urquhart, provide the means "to deploy credible and effective peace-enforcement units, at short notice and at an early stage in a crisis, and with the strength and moral support of the world community behind them".

Anarchy in the system of multilateral organisations has led to institutional inefficiency, and is an important component of the "crisis" of multilateralism that has developed over the past few decades; a crisis that has eclipsed the hopes and expectations for multilateral co-operation after World War II. Is the system really in a state of a crisis; or are the problems only of a temporary nature, connected with transition to a new era? In my view, there is no "general crisis" of the multilateral system as yet.

Thus there arises the question of the desired direction of the necessary overhaul of the system of international regulation on the assumption that, as is generally accepted, the present model and the whole institutional infrastructure does not accord with the contemporary epoch and the new pattern of international relations. We already have a large number of answers to this question since work on the reform of the old system has been going ahead for some time. Progress, however, is very slow, which testifies to the extremely complicated character of the matter in hand.
