In October of 1945, a charter was signed by the Republic of China, France, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, the United states, and many others that gave birth to the United Nations. The United Nations created a council of world leaders that could be called upon to respond to acts of war, help construct treaties between countries, and send aid to less developed countries. After the fall of the Nazi Regime, in response to Hitler’s invasion of Western Europe, the goal of the United Nations was to prevent another militarized operation of a comparable scale. Since then, there have been United Nation Coalitions used all over the world, from the Congo, to Somalia, to Rwanda – anywhere that there was deemed cause for involvement. These coalitions were deployed in order to help establish a safe environment for civilians caught in conflicts. The organization has also spearheaded campaigns to fight against worldwide hunger and starvation, along with providing access to medication and clean water to those who do not have the technology or means to obtain such commodities themselves. Up until the late 20th century, the United Nations had effectively provided humanitarian aid to many different people and had contributions relative to each nation’s economic status, each providing what they could. In the new age, are the United Nations archaic policies beneficial, or should they be replaced with a revised set of policies better suited to prevent crisis in today’s society?
