Case stories of the Libyan sanctions, peacekeeping efforts, and the symbolic politics of the Council exhibit how the legitimacy of the Council shapes global politics and the way legitimated authority may be transferred from states to foreign agencies. With authority shared among states and different associations, the interstate procedure isn't a realm of anarchy. Sovereignty is shipped between associations that experience energy simply because they're perceived as legitimate.
This book's cutting edge method of foreign organisations and diplomacy concept lends new perception into interactions among sovereign states and the United countries, and among legitimacy and the workout of energy in overseas relations.
