Abstract

The creating of United Nations is to keep global security and international peace. The United Nations Charter outlined detailed guidelines for resolving international disputes and foreshadowed the potential of the UN providing collective security. The United Nations has six organs: the General Assembly, Security Council, Economic and Social Council, Trusteeship Council, International Court of Justice, and Secretariat United. There are fifteen specialised agencies, four linked organisations as well as three convention secretariats and two United Nations trust funds affiliated with the United Nations. This paper systematically reviews and examines the structure of United Nations and its mandate within the framework of international relations. finally, the study found that the structure of United Nations has contributed a lot regarding to international security and peace, however, there is need for the notion behind veto power to be restructured due to the interest of fulfilling the Council’s purpose and goals.
