The UN's Role Today
The UN's Job During WWII

Today's role of the United Nations is when something comes up that could start either a brief battle or war between nations, the UN tries its best to settle this as peacefully as they can, but if they have to, they will get involved with world affairs.
They're International Peacekeepers.
At its first session, on February 14, 1946, the United Nations General Assembly voted to establish its permanent headquarters in New York City. In a world emerging from the overwhelming conflict of World War II, the United Nations seemed to represent hope that such devastation would not recur. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the General Assembly in 1948, symbolized this optimism and idealism.
Yet the first true test of the United Nations’ ability to prevent
widespread international conflict came in June 1950, when North Korea invaded South Korea. In response, the United Nations Security Council initiated military sanctions against North Korea, an action made possible by the absence of the Soviet representative, who had walked out in protest against the Council’s refusal to seat representatives of Communist China. This allowed the Security Council to assist South Korea in repelling its attackers and maintaining its territorial integrity.
The UN is designed to
solve issues of hostility
between countries. The UN does it's job fairly well, as it keeps some of the most recent conflicts at bay.
