Paths to Peace: The UN Security Council and its Presidency documents the works, experiences, and roles of the former presidents of the UN Security Council, which is one of the principal organs of the UN. This book first characterizes the council, including the evolution of its practice and the scope of consensus. This text then describes the scope of power of a president of the council, which is followed by papers presenting a reflection of a former president on his presidency. An intimate and internal view of the presidency by a former Director of the Security Council, Division of the UN Secretariat is then presented. Other papers tackle various experiences of former presidents, particularly in dealing with several nations. This text will be invaluable to those working in the United Nations and aim to learn from the experts, as well as to those academicians and professionals interested in public administration.
