|Title||Conserving monuments : global institutions increase security|
|Keywords||conflict, international cooperation|
|Abstract||As instruments of peacemaking, global institutions like the United Nations are not really popular. In the stiff ‘new-speak’ of the modern policy sciences we should evaluate these institutions in terms of their accountability, policy targets accomplished, customer orientation, governance-to-cost ratio and policy efficiency. This is unjustified. Since the 1960s the number of global multilateral security treaties in force has risen from some 150 to 400, in parallel to the downward trend in armed conflicts. While it may be premature to speak of a causal relationship, there is a correlation between institutional consolidation and growth on the one hand, and a less hostile world on the other.|
