INTR12-203: The United Nations


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.
