1945

Introduction

History is teeming with cautionary tales of the unintended consequences of narrow economic interests overriding the needs of the people and the issues that matter most. It is also full of seminal moments when a visionary course was charted and society moved forward. One such moment occurred 60 years ago with the founding of the United Nations. Not long after its establishment, its Member States charted a visionary course of action by recognizing that freedom, justice and peace in the world is based on recognition of the inherent dignity, equality and inalienable rights of all.
