Why Monitoring the UN Works?
One might ask the following question: Why should we monitor the work of the United Nations, in light of the fact that it has its own agencies that keep track of everything, including making sure that all procedures taking place at the UN are transparent and that the UN work should be neutral and not politicized. The answer to this question is simple and it enriches the debate about the UN and its work: Despite its declared goals of being a transparent international organization that aims to achieve peace and stability in the world, some countries, which often lack a democratic system, have over the years changed this nature of the UN, by politicizing even human rights issues and by funding groups and NGOs that operate within the UN system, that derive the UN from its supreme message.
For this reason, all people who are concerned about stability and peace in the world should work together to put an end to this reality by establishing effective mechanisms to monitor the work of the UN and to make sure that no political money is given to the UN or NGOs working there. The reason why we should do this is simple: Allowing this to happen is very destructive to the noble message of the UN and the world’s peace and security. The UN, one could argue, is one of the last few organizations that bring people together regardless of their race, color, religion or sexual orientation. Allowing this to happen is allowing for the destruction of these concepts of unity, tolerance and cooperation.
With the world seeing unlimited number of conflicts and civil wars, it has become divided like never before. Transferring these divisions and plots to the UN is the last thing that we as a civil society should allow to happen. At the same time, monitoring the UN work means that we support the founding principles of the UN against these forces of evil that seek to politicize the work of the UN, which is about bringing people together, and allow this to be replaced by dividing and destructive policies by some states and their NGOs. In other words, we push the message of the UN to be on the front and say no to political money, which makes us different than any other NGO working in the field.
This is an invitation for all concerned people to keep the principles of justice, peace, security and equality over the principles of interventions and making the world a less secure one. Being part of this project means support the world peace and making sure that the founding principles of the UN are enact and in place now and in the future.
