When 51 nations gathered in 1945 to witness the birth of the United Nations, international business groups urged governments to ratify the UN Charter without delay.

This book examines why the global order of the 21st century demands a new partnership between the UN and business. If the UN fails to engage the business community, it is likely to become irrelevant. If global corporations y refuse to support the UN, they will face a closing world with disastrous consequences for the prosperity of all. The UN and business are bound to work together, and indeed they are.

About the Author:

Sandrine Tesner manages private sector partnerships and outreach at UNOPS, a UN agency based in New York.

From Booklist:

For much of its history, the UN and the world business community have seemed to regard each other with, at best, wary mistrust. Tesner is in charge of managing private sector partnerships and outreach at the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). He attributes this animosity to the debate over development stirred by the growing influence of resource-rich, newly independent former colonies that were frequently aligned with the communist bloc. Before making his case that globalization requires that the UN must "revitalize its mission and structure by welcoming nonstate actors into its deliberative forums and policymaking bodies," Tesner traces with thorough detail the declining relationship between the organization and the business communities during the UN's relatively brief 55-year history. He also notes that business--in the form of the International and the U.S. Chambers of Commerce--was initially quite supportive of the UN and only recently has there been a rapprochement. Tesner looks at recent efforts at cooperation and describes the formats of partnerships in the four main areas of policy, fund-raising, advocacy and awareness, and operations. David Rouse
