Vatican Diplomacy at the United Nations: A History of Catholic Global Engagement
Melnyk, Roman A.

Description

This work examines the international status of the Holy See from 1870-1929, the participation of the Holy See in the early stages of development of UN agencies and the legal status of the Permanent Observer in view of relevant special law and diplomatic law. It also analyzes the development of CIC canons in the process of the revision of the Code of Canon Law, the presence of laity in the context of pontifical representation, the range of involvement of the Holy See in the United Nations, and the work of the Permanent Observer of the Holy See in the context of the mission of the Church.

Reviews

“. . . a recognition of the merits of those who have contributed to the collaboration between the Holy See and the UN. . . . keep[s] alive the memory of the work of all those who eagerly promote peace and good will to all humanity.” – Msgr. Luca Lorusso, Apostolic Nunciature Ottawa, Canada

“. . . can certainly assist in the further determination of the canonical status of the office of Permanent Observer and its role in the United Nations structure. . . . a timely resource to formulate responses to constant challenges to the status of the Holy See as a non-member state maintaining Permanent Observer Missions at the United Nations and its affiliated United Nations Offices and agencies in Geneva, Vienna, Paris, Rome, Nairobi, and other centres.” – Dr. Wojciech Kowal, Saint Paul University

“. . . a significant contribution to scholarly, historical, and practical knowledge about the Missions of the Holy See to the United Nations.” – Dr. Robert M. Garrity, Ave Maria University

"... an insightful analysis of Vatican diplomacy at the UN against the background of a detailed account of the origin, the nature and role of the United Nations. For years to come, it will remain an indispensable resource material." -- Fr. Oliver Iwuchukwu, Spiritan School of Philosophy
