What’s Wrong with the UN?

LSE Lecture Series: The United Nations at 60 – relic or relevant?

The UN was conceived by its founders as the bulwark of world peace but for 60 years it has lacked the military muscle to enforce peace and has failed as a moral beacon as well. It is rife with corruption and its record on human rights has been a disgrace. Each successive secretary general has pledged reform, but there may be no way to fix the UN’s fundamental flaws, an absence of transparency or accountability.

Joshua Muravchik is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and author of The Future of the United Nations: understanding the past to chart a way forward.
