About us
Though its primary goal is to promote humanitarianism, the United Nations (UN) is much more than a peace and love cultural movement. Comprising 192 member countries (nearly every country in the world), the UN works toward maintaining international peace and security and finding solutions for global economic and humanitarian problems. It conducts its – more... mission through several main bodies: General Assembly (main deliberative body), Economic and Social Council, International Court of Justice (settles legal disputes between states), Secretariat (day-to-day operations), Security Council (manages international peace and security operations), and Trusteeship Council (oversees a handful of trust territories).

Geographic Reach
