Abstract

ForUM: Un reForM Un reForM I ntroductIon N ielS b loKKer aND S aM M uller On 15 September 2005 the UN General Assembly adopted by consensus a document called “2005 World Summit Outcome”. 1 This issue’s Forum is devoted to this Document. We are grateful that a number of experts and insiders were willing to contribute. A few remarks below will introduce the theme of this Forum. In September 2003, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan gave his well-known “fork in the road” speech to the General Assembly (see also the contribution by Hans Corell to this Forum). UN membership was fundamentally divided during the Iraq crisis. Those in favour of the famous second resolution that never was adopted were disappointed that the Security Council was not able to enforce its earlier resolutions. Those not in favour got what they wanted (no second resolution) but were disappointed that an invasion of Iraq took place nevertheless.
