Erik Nitsche: United Nations in Asia
Artist: Erik Nitsche
When the United Nations was established in 1945, the UN Charter set up six different divisions to carry out the goals and objectives of the United Nations. Each division -- or organ as they are called -- has specific duties, powers and operating methods. The major organ of the United Nations is the General Assembly. This is the only organ in which all member nations are represented. The General Assembly discusses issues of importance to all UN members and recommends actions to be taken by individual UN members or the other organs of the UN. The Security Council has the primary responsibility of preserving worldwide peace. The Council may investigate a dispute between nations and suggest ways of settling it. To help the other organs of the United Nations perform their duties as efficiently as possible, The Secretariat manages the day-to-day business of the UN. The Charter gives the Economic and Social Council several duties including encouraging universal human rights and higher standards of living for all nations. Legal disputes between nations are handled by the International Court of Justice. The sixth organ of the UN is the Trusteeship Council which is responsible for watching over territories that are not independent. These six organs of the United Nations work together to make the world a more peaceful and secure place to live.
