The concept of preventive diplomacy has captivated the United Nations since it wasfirst articulated by Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld a half-century ago. Successivegenerations of diplomats and statesmen have invested in the idea that diplomatic efforts might beable to head off international conflicts and disasters. Dramatic successes, such as the CubanMissile Crisis of 1962, contrast with dramatic failures, such as the inability of UN efforts to haltthe invasion of Iraq in 2003. In this careful study, distinguished former UN civil servant BertrandG. Ramcharan traces the history of the practice of preventive diplomacy by UNSecretaries-General, the Security Council, and other UN organizations, and assesses the recordof preventive diplomacy and examines its prospects in an age of genocide and terrorism.
