Chapter Summary

During his years in Secretary General Kofi Annan's senior management team, he saw, first hand, how effective multilateral action with local and regional partners, helped build progress and peace. Wars ended and hope was provided in Liberia and Sierra Leone; Angola and Burundi; South Sudan and Northern Uganda; Kosovo and Nepal. If anyone should have learnt the importance of immediate availability of life-saving relief, it should be the ASEAN countries that were devastated in the tsunami. His team then pushed for and got immediate access to war-torn Aceh and Sri Lanka's strife-ridden Tamil areas. As much as Iraq is a symbol of unilateral impotence in our time and age, the author still believes the worst war zone of our generation, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), can become a signal of multilateral potency.

Keywords: Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC); global governance; multilateral action; Secretary General Kofi Annan; Sri Lanka; war-torn Aceh
