United Nations (UN)

The United Nations is an international organisation founded following World War II, in 1945. As of 2021, it is made up of 193 Member States. While the UN has evolved since then to keep pace with a rapidly changing world, it says one thing has stayed the same: “it remains the one place on Earth where all the world’s nations can gather together, discuss common problems, and find shared solutions that benefit all of humanity”. The UN’s main bodies are the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, the Trusteeship Council, the International Court of Justice, and the UN Secretariat. UN specialised agencies include The Food and Agriculture Organization; the International Civil Aviation Organization; the International Fund for Agricultural Development; the International Labor Organization; the International Monetary Fund; the International Maritime Organization; the International Telecommunication Union; the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization; the United Nations Industrial Development Organization; the World Tourism Organization; the Universal Postal Union, the World Health Organization; the World Intellectual Property Organization; the World Meteorological Organization; and the World Bank Group
