Global Britain in the United Nations

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This is a report written by three academics from the University of
Manchester, the University of Southampton, and the University
of Leeds on behalf of the United Nations Association – UK. These
researchers have conducted a year-long project supported by the
British Academy.
1 Drawing extensively from research interviews
with 29 participants2 – UN diplomats, UK officials, and individuals
from non-governmental organisations – they have developed a
picture of the perceptions and reputation of the United Kingdom
within the United Nations system. Their research supports UNAUK’s longstanding3 contention that the UK needs to demonstrate
its added value to the United Nations system, and adopt a
principled and values driven foreign policy, if it is to maintain its
current levels of efficacy and impact at the United Nations and
add substance to its self-described ‘Global Britain’ agenda
