Abstract

It has always been very interesting to see how flexible and adaptable to changing circumstances the Charter of the United Nations has been. In particular, since the end of the Cold War the system of international relations has undergone significant changes that required adjustments in the system of the United Nations. If these adjustments as a necessary consequence of the changed situation were not made, and if the United Nations did not conform to them, its authority would undoubtedly be significantly impaired. The first edition of the commentary upon the Charter of the United Nations has already received an important and extremely valuable reception in the legal discussion of the United Nations. But when it was published immediately after the end of the Cold War, no clear tendencies of a new orientation of the United Nations were recognizable; only their first signs had appeared on the horizon. Ten years later, the adaptation of the United Nations to the new international situation was relatively consolidated and provided the United Nations with new features. Thus, for instance, the activity of the United Nations in the field of peace-keeping operations has substantially been enlarged and criminal tribunals have been established either under
