Background paper for a UNESCO / UNITAR expert meeting on the role of international organizations in the contemporary world (Geneva, 15-19 March, 1976)

Introduction

The purpose of this paper is to propose "draft outline" of Part IV of the proposed Unesco Study under the title future perspectives of international organizations. Given the competence and interest of the author, this paper will focus primarily on the nongovernmental actors and international organizations in general but not on questions specific to intergovernmental organizations. These will presumably be a prime concern of others contributing to this meeting.

  1. Changing meaning of international organization
  2. Relationships and networks
  3. Quantitative description of future evolution of international organization
  4. Changing nature of relationships between organizations
  5. Changing nature of relationships between organizations and nation-states.
  6. Scenarios for the future of the international system
  7. Future significance for the alleviation of world problems
  8. Relevance of international bodies to developing countries
  9. Maximization of organization of organizational potential
  10. Future policies of mobilizing resources in support of programme action
  11. Future possibilities for facilitating achievement of full organizational potential
  12. Trends in organizational operations
  13. Restrictions on organizational operations.
