UN’s inception and FCCI’s role in International Conference

Established after World War II and following the ineffectiveness of the League of Nations, the United Nations acts as an intergovernmental body whose stated objectives are to promote world peace and security. It has 77 years of history since its inception and has 193 member states.

The UN plans to address the problems faced by humanity in the twenty-first century in the modern world. It mainly includes:

  • Respecting international law
  • Defending human rights
  • Providing humanitarian help
  • Fostering sustainable development
  • Preserving international peace and security

Modern times are facing multiple issues that pose a threat to global peace and cause negative impact on the UN. The ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine can be considered an example of the factors affecting global peace.

It mainly leads to the following issues faced by the UN:

  • Power imbalance
  • Non-equitable representation of member states
  • Lack of democratic principles in decision-making
  • Dependency of the UN for funds on its member states

There are some brand-new global issues that need coordinated responses, particularly those that pertain to peace and security. Hence, fostering reconciliation among the member states is essential for enhancing the relevance and effectiveness of these institutions at both the UN and UNSC levels.

In order to empower the UN through its “One World” approach to collective governance, the FCCI performed a thorough study over the course of numerous brainstorming meetings and, through a reliable literature survey, came up with some new recommendations. Reforms to the UNSC are given particular attention.

FCCI has developed a number of unique, inclusive recommendations to improve UNSC representation equity and instill democratic values in decision-making. The foundation has initiated a unique system that has also been suggested for the UN’s financial independence for efficient global governance.

This international conference’s major goal includes multiple aspects, which are as follows:

  • Share research
  • Exchange ideas
  • Open discussions with the UN

The discussion with the United Nations will focus on the urgent need for reforms with representatives from various member states, veto-holding countries, G-4, G-20, C-10 nations, the EU, and other members.

This international meeting is the first significant step in advancing UN changes without taking a biased stance and beginning the difficult process of forging consensus among the UN member nations.

The program will be quite participatory and feature speakers and panelists from various backgrounds, including UN affairs specialists, diplomats, business leaders, and international law experts.
