The Institutional Conditions for a UN Foreign Policy
This article addresses the institutional capabilities of the United Nations to develop its own foreign policy. Basing the analysis on the works in the field of Foreign Policy Analysis, the article deals with the apparatus necessary for the organisation to craft its own policy. Furthermore the article draws parallels between the national institutions and the institutions of the organisation in order to enlighten the function of the different branches inside the United Nations. The UN Secretariat is dealt as one important instrument for the exercise of an independent foreign policy for the institution.
