This paper describes the United Nations in order to arrive at a better understanding of how the organization works. Specifically, the paper relates the structure of the organization, how and by whom it was created and the key issues surrounding multiple problems associated with the UN. Even though the UN makes many positive contributions to the international community, the paper underscores that critics are calling for the reform of the UN to make it a more effective organization.

From the Paper:

"The key participants of these newly developed principles were the United States, France, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union and China. The establishment of an international organization grew even closer on April 24, 1945 when fifty countries and a number of nongovernmental organizations (NGO's) embarked on San Francisco to attend the United Nations Conference on International Organizations to draft the future Charter of the United Nations."
