International Conference on United Nations at 70
Amity Law School Centre - II, Amity University, Noida is going to organize the International Conference on "United Nations at 70".
Date: 4th - 5th February, 2016
Call for Papers:
Since its inception in 1945, the United Nations (UN) has become the foremost forum to address issues that transcend national boundaries and cannot be resolved by any one country acting alone. UN has grown from the original 51 member states to its current 193 nations, acclaimed for its accomplishments and has become a multifarious organization for global governance. The year when we are celebrating the 70th anniversary of UN, it gives an opportunity to analyze whether the institution has been able to fulfill the expectations and goals for which it was formed and contemplation about the future of the organization.
It was founded at the end of a war during which genocide had been committed on a horrific scale. Its prime objective was to prevent such a conflict from ever happening again. Additionally, its initial goals of safeguarding peace, protecting human rights, establishing the framework for international justice and promoting economic and social progress, however, new challenges, such as climate change, international terrorism has been added to its agenda. While conflict resolution and peacekeeping continue to be among its most visible efforts, it is also engaged in a wide array of activities to improve people lives around the world.
However, critics say that the victors of World War II have been the power players since 1945. UN itself has ballooned: 85,000 bureaucrats, an annual spend of about $40 billion (£26 billion) - 2,000 times that of the organization's budget during its first year in 1946. Spending had quadrupled in the past 20 years - and still several agencies struggle to balance their books. It is been criticized that since it was formed, UN has become bigger and bigger. Many organizations have overlapping mandates. In some sectors, such as water and energy, more than 20 UN agencies are active and compete for limited resources without a clear collaborative framework. More than 30 UN agencies and programs have a stake in environmental management. Cooperation between organisations has been hindered by competition for funding, mission creep and by outdated business practices.
