The G8, the United Nations, and Conflict Prevention


This innovative and forward looking work examines the Genoa summit agenda with a view to strengthening international conflict prevention institutions and identifying and analyzing economic early warning indicators. It devotes particular attention to the Italian contribution and approach and the ways in which it can be effectively implemented following the summit. The first book to compare the role of the G8 and the United Nations in conflict prevention and human security, The G8, the United Nations, and Conflict Prevention will be essential reading for academics, government officials and members of the business and media communities.

Revised and updated version of papers first presented at the conference "Promoting Conflict Prevention and Human Security. What Can the G8 Do?" (2001 G8 Pre-Summit Public Policy Conference) organised in Rome on 16 July 2001 by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) in cooperation with the G8 Research Group and the Centro militare di studi strategici (CeMiSS).
