The United Nations

  • S. H. Steinberg
Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


The United Nations is an association of states which have pledged themselves, through signing the Charter, to maintain international peace and security and to co-operate in establishing political, economic and social conditions under which this task can be securely achieved. Nothing contained in the Charter authorizes the organization to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdication of any state.
