Item description for United Nations-Sponsored World Conferences: Focus on Impact and Follow-Up by Michael G. Schechter...
United Nations-sponsored World Conferences fills a gap in the literature on UN Conferences, multilateralism, and global governance. It also seeks to contribute to the on-going international debate on whether such conferences are worthwhile. The publication demonstrates through case studies that the worthiness of the conferences requires a focus on the follow-up to and implementation of the Conferences and not simply attention to the conferences themselves. They argue that the terms of public debate on the accomplishments of such conferences, and thus the future of similar conferences, must include a careful assessment of their impacts long after the final documents have been passed and the final gavels sounded, even after the "plus five" follow-up conferences have all been convened.
