It is a misguided apprehension that the UN may become a world government interfering in the internal conflicts of nation states so that the challenges to global governance can be overcome. The UN is a cooperative assembly of sovereign states and it does not and cannot exercise sovereignty over any member state. But with global interdependence becoming an established fact and barriers between nations and people being torn down on one side and on the other side, human catastrophes, abuse of human rights, ethnic conflicts on the rise, no nation powerful or otherwise can solve these problems alone or afford to ignore them. The different hurdles in the path of the UN in handling these types of conflicts, if sincerely and seriously considered and removed, the UN can serve as an effective forum for global cooperation and collaboration.
