Abstract and Keywords

This article discusses the proposals on the negotiating tables at the World Summit that deals with four of the principal organs: the General Assembly, ECOSOC, the Security Council, and the suspended Trusteeship Council. These proposals are situated in a proper historical context. It is also stressed that reform is a process and not an event, and that the United Nations adapts to changing circumstances faster than it adopts structural reform.

Keywords: proposals, World Summit, principal organs, ECOSOC, General Assembly, Trusteeship Council, Security Council, historical context, structural reform
