The United Nations is an integral actor in international relations, as well as in politics more generally. As the world becomes ever more interconnected, intergovernmental organizations play an important role in shaping the lives of nations across the globe. Through much research of the treaties and resolutions that are passed by the UN, it has been realized that a member states domestic policy is not only framed under UN agreements (with significant flexibility in implementation), but much policy is being created to reflect values in international law. With this, the work done by the UN, and how these frameworks are implemented by specific member-states, affects the lives of people greatly, making it an intriguing process to reflect upon.


This paper was presented as part of the Model United Nations course (HIST 3083) taught by Dr. Kevin Brennan.
