CSDS Speaker Series 2010-11

The UN Security Council:
In the Crucible of Geostrategic Change

David M. Malone
President of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC)

Canada is running for a seat in the UN Security Council in elections to be held October 12 in New York. Its campaign has received quite a lot of media attention.  Fundamental shifts in the Council's decision-making and in the relationships among its key members have not. Malone's remarks will address changes in the Council (deriving from changes in wider international relations) that might inspire Canada to define its role in the Council, if elected, somewhat differently than in the past.  He is also interested in views from the audience on the topic
David M. Malone
, President of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and a former Canadian Ambassador at the UN, has been tracking the Council for twenty years, documenting aspects of its decision-making in a number of books, including, Decision-Making in the UN Security Council: The Case of Haiti (Oxford, 2008); The UN Security Council from Cold War to Twenty-First Century (Lynne Rienner, 2004); The International Struggle over Iraq: Politics in the UN Security Council (Oxford, 2006); and The Law and Practice of the UN (Oxford 2008).
