This paper poses the question "The UN's technical assistance and development work: a permanent crisis without solution?" It considers the UN's history and examines its management structure. The UN's hierarchical structure is out of touch with modern professional practices. Hope for the UN technical assistance programme can only be found through fundamental re-thinking and the possibility of privatisation of these services is discussed.
