The United Nations has been the only international institution that has attempted, and has largely been successful, to engage most of the countries throughout the world in discussions on how to solve global problems. While there is no doubt that some reform is necessary in the organization, the U.S. no longer can view the U.N. as a roadblock. Rather, we must see at it as a partner.
The next president’s views on the U.N. and their proposals to foster a relationship
with it, will have a lasting impact on the future. As such, they must be examined. This paper looks at the positions of Senators Barack Obama and John McCain on this issue and how they might act towards the U.N. as president.
