Looking back at the last ten years of the UN Global Compact (2000-2010), I discuss the achievements, problems and current challenges of the initiative. Particularly, I will consider the institutional context and constraints of the Global Compact as a UN-backed initiative. The discussion is structured around three main issue areas: (1) a retrospective assessment of achievements and problems of the Global Compact, (2) a prospective view into the future and discussion of needed institutional reforms, and (3) a reflection of the current context in which the Global Compact operates, particularly considering the challenges created by the recent economic downturn. My analysis positions the Global Compact as a network-based global governance arrangement reflecting a rapprochement between the UN system and the business community.
