Essay ideas? United Nations?
For a political science class i need to right an essay related to the United Nations work. Most people will probably choose peacekeeping missions so i'm going to avoid doing that. Any ideas?

The United Nations is an organization of sovereign nations not a world
government. It provides the machinery to help find solutions to disputes or
problems, and to deal with virtually any matter of concern to humanity.
It does not legislate like a national parliament. But in the meeting
rooms and corridors of the UN, representatives of almost all countries of the
world large and small, rich and poor, with varying political views and social
systems have a voice and vote in shaping the policies of the international
community. The year 1995 marks the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Organization.
The UN has six main organs, listed below. All are based at UN
Headquarters in New York, except the International Court of Justice, which is
located at The Hague, Netherlands.
The General Assembly
The General Assembly, sometimes called the nearest thing to a world
parliament, is the main deliberative body. All Member States are represented in
it, and each has one vote. Decisions on ordinary matters are taken by simple
majority. Important questions require a two-thirds majority.
The Assembly holds its regular sessions from mid-September to mid-
December; special or emergency sessions are held when necessary. Even when the
Assembly is not in session, its work goes on in special committees and bodies.
The Assembly has the right to discuss and make recommendations on all
matters within the scope of the UN Charter. It has no power to compel action by
any Government, but its recommendations carry the weight of world opinion. Read more here:

I'd probably write it on the UN Security Council - how it was formed, which countries are in it, what its function is, how it's influenced UN policy, as well as international relations (how countries interact with each other, such as foreign policy).
