Gardner, Janet
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
This informative program provides an accurate profile of the United Nations-its organization, structure, and purpose. It covers the organization from its history and status as an international zone in New York City, to explanations of its role as mediator between developed and developing nations, which often find themselves politically divided. UN officials offer candid revelations about tensions in the UN Security Council, how the balance of power is maintained between negotiating nations, and the changes brought about by the end of the Cold War. The many ways that satellite agencies such as UNICEF impact today's global political environment are discussed.
