(Video) Rajya Sabha TV (RSTV) The Big Picture: 75 Years of United Nations (UN)

Topic: 75 Years of United Nations (UN)


  • Manjeev Singh Puri, (Former Ambassador)
  • Arvind Gupta, (Director, Vivekananda International Foundation)
  • Prof. Swaran Singh, (Chairperson, Centre for International Politics, Organisation and Disarmament, JNU)

Topic Description:

October 24 marks the diamond jubilee of the United Nations. But far from a joyous celebration, it is an occasion to sombrely reflect on why the UN is stagnating at 75 and how it can regain its lost lustre. Although much has changed in the international system since 1945, the world body continues to see a tussle between ‘principle’ and ‘power’. On the one hand, the UN represents hopes of a peaceful and just world order through multilateral cooperation, abidance by international law, and upliftment of the downtrodden. On the other, the institution has been designed to privilege the most powerful states of the post-World War II dispensation by granting them commanding heights over international politics via the undemocratic instruments of veto power and permanent seats in the Security Council (UNSC).
