United Nations

The United Nations (UN) is one of the most prominent international organizations. The UN was built with the aim to promote international security, international peace, law, economic growth, human rights, and democracy. 193 state members are part of the United Nations. UN was founded base on the charter – constitution. In 1939 – 1945 happened the World War II, and the League of Nations was built before the UN, and it was not able to prevent this cold war. Nine million people died in this war. United Nations was founded to replace the League of Nations in order to maintain peace, and solve international economic, humanitarian, and social issues.

System of the foundation of the UN is based on 5 principals, the General Assembly, the Economic and Social Council, the Secretariat and the International Court of Justice. Four are located in NYC and the International Court of Justice is located in The Hague. When writing about The Hague, reminds me of the war that happened in my country. Slobodan Milošević was a Serbian and Yugoslav politician who was the President of Serbia from 1989 to 1997 and President of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1997 to 2000. He was sentenced in the International Court of Justice for the crimes that he had done.

UN’s aims are to build democratic governance. The main challenge is to develop institutions that are responsive to the needs of the ordinary people, the poor. The human rights are some of the major issues within the UN. People of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom, was stated in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
