Almost a third of its members have requested its assistance in conducting elections, and it is supporting a new wave of democracy --although not without difficulty --in places such as East Timor, Afghanistan, Cambodia, and Kosovo.

This book considers the effectiveness and controversy of the UNs work in promoting and assisting democracy. It asks if the UN can help to build the foundations of democracy and whether, as an external actor, it can have a substantive positive impact upon the development of democratic governance inside societies.

Set against a background of political science and international relations, The UN Role in Promoting Democracy explores how the ideals of democracy interact with the realities of power in the international arena and in the societies in which the UN works.

The book provides a timely analysis of the prospects and limitations of the UNs work, and of the broader field of democracy promotion.
