Abstract

The United Nations (UN) is the centerpiece of global governance and represents an advanced institutional form of international cooperation. In addition, it is an extension of the willingness of independent states to form an international society, serving as a major source of norm-making and norm implementation. A complex system of interstate interactions in terms of institutional structure, as well as a collection of intergovernmental organizations, the UN is tasked to play different roles in international politics. Its powers and missions are also extremely diverse, both in terms of scope and in terms of their binding effect upon members of international society.
