Chapter Summary

At the end of the 1970s so-called Independent Commissions first appeared on the international agenda, which were established in connection with or on the initiative of different bodies of the United Nations. In 1969 the Pearson Commission, which is a direct precursor of the Independent Commissions of the late 70s, 80s and 90s, presented its report Partners in Development. The Brandt Commission took up later on the tradition of analyzing the development policy of the Pearson Report and of other Third World development reports. The Palme Commission attempted to formulate a concept of military security complementary to the Brandt Report. The reports of the Brandt and Brundtland Commissions brought to the public awareness of the international community in the 80s that there are common interests of survival.
