Let's build a stronger, more effective UN

29 September 2020

Dr Alex Awiti, Vice Provost of the Aga Khan University in Kenya, writes that the United Nations was created to maintain peace and security to achieve international cooperation in solving international problems.

The very essence of the United Nations is global collective action through consensus that is forged by mutual self-interest.
