ZIF Policy Briefing: Reforming the United Nations' Peace and Security Pillar


Reform is a perennial issue at the United Nations.

But it is clear that reform is needed.

In this latest ZIF Policy Briefing, Tanja Bernstein focuses on the two dimensions of reform of the peace and security pillar proposed by Guterres: the review of the peace and security architecture and management reform.
