Is the U.N still relevant? To what extent can it effectively adapt and reform to deal with challenges such as human rights, peaceful conflict resolution, terrorism, and genocide? Discuss with reference to course readings and lecture notes.

Intro: * The UN was established at the end of ww2 * Its main purpose: maintaining international peace and security * Un charter: refers to the needs and interests of peoples * The UN remains to be relevant however it tends to be flawed in many ways possible
Although there are many flaws to the UN, it remains to be relevant due to the crucial consolidating role it played in, promotion and development of public international law, defence of the universality of human rights, dissemination of new ideas about peace and security, advocacy of plans against poverty, protection of the environment, protects 22m refugees and hosts to 7,500 meetings a year in Geneva alone.
Although we do have political order since the presence of the UN, such political order might not be good because due to its flaws, the UN’s unstable trust and legitimacy is what keeps Yes we do have political order, but that might not be good because trust and legitimacy is what keeps the institution moving on the path all states can depend on.

However,
Most of the UN's political operations, including peacekeeping, answer to the Security Council.
Security Council made up 15 states. Decisions to be made by majority of 9 out of 15. The ones who get things done veto
5 five permanent members have Veto (the US, Britain, France, USSR -later Russia, and China)

problem : biases and values towards the west theres political decentralization and that worries us due to the fact that societies have different norms and values, historical experience, we have diverging interests

Kashmir Issue at Un

...of failure of United Nations Machinery Country: Germany Delegate: Ruchi Gupta Since the partition of British India into India and Pakistan in 1947, the Kashmir conflict between them has become intractable. India first referred the case of Pakistani aggression in Kashmir to the United Nations Security Council under Article 35 of the UN Charter on January 1, 1948. This move was directed towards protecting India’s territorial integrity. United Nations was involved in mediating the Kashmir conflict from 1948 through 1965. Later, at the end of the Third Pakistan- India war of 1971, Pakistan and India signed the Simla Agreement in 1972 which emphasized the adoption of a bilateral framework to solve the crisis. UNSC resolution 47 of 1948 recommended Pakistan to withdraw all its tribesmen and Pakistani nationals. It also recommended Indian forces to be reduced to minimum strengths to maintain law and order so as to later hold a UN supervised plebiscite in the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir to determine the aspirations of her people. But Pakistan never vacated and later India also backed out. As a result the referendum never went through and UN declaration could not be implemented. Germany agrees that the Kashmir issue should be undertaken bilaterally as “one spark” could be disastrous for the entire region. Germany has always supported negotiated settlement of the Kashmir issue between Pakistan and India. We also believe that the two countries could follow the principle......

Relevancy and Admissibility

...To distinguish between relevancy and admissibility, I would like to explain the meaning of relevancy and admissibility before we proceed to the difference between these two concepts. According to Janab’s Key to Evidence, relevancy refers to the degree of connection and probative value between a fact that is given in evidence and the issue to be proved. Relevancy of facts had been provided from Section 5 to 55 of Evidence Act 1950. By referring to the illustration (a) provided in Section 5 where A is tried for the murder of B by beating him with a club with the intention of causing his death. There are three facts in issue to be proved - A’s beating B with the club; A’s causing B’s death by the beating; and A’s intention to cause B’s death. A fact is relevant when it is so related to the fact in issue, that they render the fact in issue probable or improbable. For example, to prove the third facts in issue in the example just now, the facts that A and B was having quarrel before the murder happens is relevant to prove the third facts in issue which is A’s intention to cause B’s death. Admissibility involves the process whereby the court determines whether the Law of Evidence permits that relevant evidence to be received by the court. The concept of admissibility is often distinguished from relevancy. Relevancy is determined by logic and common sense, practical or human experience, and knowledge of affairs. On the other hand, The admissibility of evidence, depends......

Comment Creer Un Wbs

...Comment Creer Un WBS Comment construire une structure WBS (Word Breakdown Structure) Un WBS ou structure WBS (Work Breakdown Structure) définit les objectifs d'un projet à tous ses niveaux de détail. Chaque niveau représente les composants mesurables qui doivent être fabriqués ou achevés afin d'atteindre l'objectif final, à savoir la réalisation et la livraison du produit. Le WBS a une structure hiérarchique : l'objectif situé en haut de la structure (niveau 1)représente l'ensemble du projet, alors que les niveaux inférieurs découpent le projet en composants et sous-composants de manière de plus en plus détaillée. Lors de la mise en place d'un WBS, il est important d'éviter de reproduire une structure de type organisationnelle ou fonctionnelle, dans la mesure où celles-ci ne sont pas fondées sur les résultats à atteindre. Les objectifs définis à tous les niveaux du WBS doivent au contraire représenter des résultats ou des livrables mesurables, en d'autres termes les composants du produit final à livrer au client à l'aboutissement du projet. Le WBS doit donc impérativement se limiter à définir les produits, sous-produits et services directement liés à ces résultats et livrables. La première étape de la gestion d'un projet consiste à créer le WBS. C'est en effet sur cette structure que se fonde toute la planification des processus et des échéances du projet. Ainsi, une fois le WBS mis en place, minutieusement vérifié et au besoin rectifié, il devient le document......

...grandes oportunidades. El desafío es atender la base de la pirámide económica, pues es ahí, donde se puede crear un enorme valor de mercado. Para ello la innovación estratégica se enfoca en cuatro puntos importantes: Accesibilidad, Aceptación, Disponibilidad y Reconocimiento. La empresa que quiere ingresar a un mercado de bajos ingresos primero debe ofrecer productos y servicios a precios accesibles. Para ello deberá desarrollar estrategias y ofertas que se adapten a los ingresos de los consumidores, tal como lo hizo Procter & Gamble ofreciendo micro paquetes de shampoo, jabón y la empresa de Telefonía Smart sacando micro recargas de hasta 0.50 centavos. Ambas empresas pensaron en el flujo de efectivo de sus clientes. En segundo lugar debe lograr la aceptación de sus productos o servicios por parte del cliente potencial. Para ello es necesario que la empresa moldee ciertas características del producto o servicio y lo adapte a las necesidades del mercado. Podemos citar el caso de Unilever, la empresa, analizó el entorno cultural de la India y lanzó un jabón económico con ingredientes especiales para la salud capilar. Además debe crear canales donde no existen y aprender a generar la demanda de mercado. Lo importante es desarrollar creativamente otros métodos de marketing que permitan difundir y entregar productos o servicios en las diversas comunidades. Un ejemplo es Avon, esta empresa supera las barreras de distribución pues su producto llega hasta las......

Un Ensuring Peace and Security

...To what extent is the UN effective in ensuring peace and security? The United Nations was set up in 1945 and contains 192 members which is ongoing. Its primary aim was to ensure it safeguarded peace and security, with other aims revolving around human rights, international law and social progress. The UN has been heavily criticised due its functions and how it operate, however many would argue that the UN has been very effective in ensuring peace and, as an effect, security. To some extent the UN has been very effective in ensuring peace and security solely due to the reason it is the closest organisation our world has to global governance. Its policing the international system and the world is better with it than without. The approach to reaching its aim is done via the power vested in the Security Council. The Security Council are responsible for ensuring the un role as peacekeeper and has the power to legally binding resolutions, economic sanctions and to even take military action in order to maintain peace. Effectively, the UN is therefore a creation of its members. The Powerful 5 (P-5) USA, Russia, UK, France and China, have the ability to pass legally binding resolutions which can promote peace and security and eradicate any form of threat. A recent example of this is formed in the Syria crisis and the UNs decision to get rid of the Chemical weapons it had used on its civilians in order to reach peace. This demonstrated the power of the legally binding resolution......

Korea and Kim Jong Un

...Madison Koci Stewart Frame GWC PS110 Due: 12/12/13 North Korea and Kim Jong Un Kim Jong Un is the the 29-year-old ruler of North Korea, one of the most distinctive and unpredictable countries in the world. It is a cocktail of poisonous elements: autocratic, repressive, isolated and poor (Powell).Its regime is dangerous not only to its people but also to the rest of the world. Its actions have had an unsettling impact on international relations in northeast Asia, particularly its nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009 and its shelling of Yeonpyeong Island in 2010, all of which led to tensions between China and the united States (Ahn). North Korea’s present and future, therefore, are of global concern (Powell). North Korea is "a Stalinist monarchy" where bloodlines, and only bloodlines, determine who the next dictator will be--no matter how young or inexperienced that person may be, notes South Korean scholar Cheong Seong-chang (Ahn). Nearly 30,000 U.S. troops sit across the border, helping defend South Korea against the 1.2 million-member army, most of it which exists within 30 miles of the demilitarized zone. Over the past decade, despite crippling economic sanctions imposed by most of the outside world, North Korea has defiantly developed and tested nuclear weapons and the long-range missiles needed to deliver them (Ahn). Western intelligence agencies make an educated guess that Pyongyang is holding 8 to 12 nuclear weapons. The hard truth is that North Korea is Asia's......

Relevancy and Admissibilty of Evidence in Court

...Essay on relevancy and admissibility of evidence in court: There are facts that are relevant to the issue and can be proved. On the other end there are those facts which cannot be proved on the ground that they are irrelevant to the issue. Such facts include the character of the accused and are broken down into facts of character evidence, similar fact, previous consistent and evidence of previous conviction. The general rule of law regarding the irrelevant facts is that they are inadmissible. Character evidence is regarded as irrelevant fact and the general rule of law is that it is inadmissible in court. There are, however, exceptions to the general rule where character evidence becomes admissible. In a situation where the accused adduces evidence to establish his own good character, he becomes exposed to attack by prosecution who then tries to prove a point that the accused is of bad character. Another, instance, is where the nature of the accused’s defence is to attack the character of either the prosecutor or witnesses for prosecution. For an example, the accused might allege that the prosecutor is being vindictive because he refused to pay the prosecutor money to let him off the hook. Evidence of similar fact is evidence of the past bad conduct which refers to a particular, immoral or illegal conduct of a party which has nothing to do with the issue in dispute but similar to a fact in issue. The general rule is that that the accused has had bad behaviour and......

Un Mission

...Essay on the United Nations and peacekeeping. The UN Security Council is the main organization of the United Nations dedicated to the resolution of conflicts and peacekeeping. It is composed of fifteen members, five of whom are permanent, namely China, France, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and the United States, and ten of which are elected by the General Assembly every two years. When the Security Council is confronted with a problem that can represent a threat for international peace and safety, it must first try to resolve the problem peacefully. In die past, the Security Council has acted as mediator or, in cases of armed conflict, proposed a cease-fire. The Council can also reinforce its decisions by enacting sanctions. Sanctions are a way for the Council to apply its decisions, constituting a step between a simple condemnation and armed intervention. Sanctions can include an arms embargo, trade and finance restrictions, the ceasing of air and sea contact, or diplomatic isolation. Furthermore, the council can also opt for measures that call for more people and material. Peacekeeping missions allow the Security Council to watch over the cease-fire and participate in the creation of conditions for peace. On a few occasions, the Security Council has authorized member States to use all the necessary’ means to keep the peace, including collective military action. General Indar Jit Rktye, the former president of the International Peace Academy who has......

Un China

...undoubtedly there is an intention on the part of Beijing to make good on its increase in relative power and the opportunities that a more centralized leadership under President Xi Jinping provides for articulating a clearer foreign policy message and more forward foreign policy behaviour. This article provides evidence in support of the argument that China has decided to adopt a more activist foreign policy. It focuses predominantly on China’s policy towards the United Nations as a way of demonstrating a new willingness to take decisions previously left in abeyance, and as an example of a policy area where the Chinese leadership believes it is showing a desire and an ability to contribute to global public goods. In particular, I explain here why the UN is favoured by China as a venue for displaying a more globalist stance, focusing on the UN’s institutional design and on China’s longstanding involvement in peace operations as the primary sources of the country’s increased activism in a multilateral venue of high importance to it. * 1 This article is a revised version of a paper completed while the author was the Dr Seaker Chan Visiting Scholar at the Center for Comparative Political Development Studies, School of International Relations and Public Affairs, Fudan University, Shanghai.
