The Security Council's first fifty years - Kirgis, F.L

Site thumbnail
Kirgis evaluates the role and provisions of the Security Council during the period 1945-1995. He looks into the history of the Council and the generic issues which have emerged over this time, assessing the opinions of others as to the changes within the organisation. Kirgis concludes that "there is little doubt that the legal modalities of, and constraints upon, Security Council action today are not what they were thought to be in 1945". 89 AJIL 506
