The UN is an international organization which was established in 1945 to:
(a) maintain international peace and security; (b) develop friendly
relations among nations, (c) achieve international cooperation in solving
economic, social, cultural, and humanitarian problems and in promoting
respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms; and (d) be a center for
harmonizing the actions of nations in attaining these common ends. UN
membership includes approximately 170 nations. UN headquarters are located
in New York City. The UN structure includes six principal organs,
specialized agencies, major programs, autonomous agencies, committees,
subsidiary organs, and approximately a dozen peace-keeping forces. Some of
the specialized agencies and other bodies were established before the UN
was created.

The six principal UN organs are:
- The General Assembly (composed of all UN member nations)
- Security Council
- Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC)
- Trusteeship Council
- International Court of Justice (seated in The Hague, Netherlands)
- The Secretariat (which provides studies, information, and facilities
for UN bodies)
