This chapter casts a net on the previous chapters, gathering the main problems which have been grappled in the book, and surveying the solutions proposed from the discussion that has unfolded. At least four conclusions can be drawn from the critical assessment of international institutions undertaken by the various contributors to this book: states to continue playing a dominant role; there is no hope for a reform of the United Nations; world society is still governed by state interest; and there is room both for enhancing some nascent ‘communitarian’ features of the international order and for legal change in many areas.

Keywords:   international institutions, states, United Nations reform, world society, international order, legal change
