Abstract and Keywords

This article discusses the changing face of multilateralism. It emphasizes the need for pluralizing the voices heard in UN deliberations and taking the Charter Preamble's call more seriously. It shows that multilateralism has gone through a process of continual change throughout the history of the United Nations, and stresses the possibility that this dynamic process will continue well into the future. The article also reiterates the importance of getting involved in civil society organizations, local groups, and business groups, which would help change unconscious participants to conscious participants in international society.

Keywords: multilateralism, UN deliberations, Charter Preamble, continual change, civil society organizations, participation, international society
