The UN: still fit for purpose or a 20th-century relic? | Institute of Continuing Education skip to content

Institute of Continuing Education

In the aftermath of the Second World War, the United Nations was a bold and brave attempt at creating a security environment in which the scourge of global war, if not violence itself, would be absent. Since 1945 the UN has expanded its role into areas including human rights and child soldiers, and remains a major voice in international affairs. But it has also proved to be highly resistant to change, and somewhat ineffective in dealing with many of the issues of the world today. This course will examine the history and development of the UN, examine attempts at reforming it, and consider its relevance today.
