THE UNITED NATIONS
The United Nations is an international organisation founded in 1945. It currently consists of 193 Member States. The mission and work of the United Nations (UN) are guided by the purposes and principles contained in its founding Charter.
As well as the more visible elements of UN action around the world, such as Peacekeeping, the UN provides a forum for members to express their views in the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council and other bodies and committees. By enabling dialogue between its members, and by hosting negotiations, the Organisation has become a mechanism for governments to find areas of agreement and solve problems together.
In 2015, the UN celebrated its 70th Anniversary. ACWW has had Special Consultative status to ECOSOC since 1947.
