By the end of World War II, democratic nations (and some not so democratic) were convinced that an international organization was needed to deal with the after effects of the War (e.g., reconstruction) as well as to provide a forum for discussion of differences between member states. The result was the United Nations. Click on United Nations http://www.un.org/to view a copy of the Charter, and check out this brief history http://www.un.org/aboutun/history.htm of the founding of the U.N.
Composed of the General Assembly and the Security Council (and numerous agencies), the U.N. has a charter that member nations must agree to follow prior to being allowed to join.
Do you think the U.N. has been successful in “furthering world peace“?
