This subject provides an introduction to the history, structure, development and world view of the United Nations. It analyses the UN as the centre of world diplomacy as well as a supranational human rights and welfare agency. It also looks at the paradoxical Security Council, the agency responsible for peace-keeping and peace-making deployments whose members are, at the same time, the manufacturers and distributors of weapons fuelling most international conflicts.
