Is the United Nations Machinery an Effective Instrument for Peace?
MetadataShow full item record
It has sometimes been argued that aggression and conflicts are qualities inherent in human beings and as such conflicts will always be with men unto eternity. It is not the objectives of this paper to trace either the historic origin of conflicts or the political economy underlying these conflicts. The objective of this paper is to analyse the mechanisms by which modern conflicts are regulated. A critical analysis will be made of the United Nations organisation and its subsidiary organs in order to ascertain whether they are in fact capable and do indeed either prevent armed conflicts or contain conflicts which arise.
