The primary role of the United Nations (UN) is to maintain international peace and security. It does this by preventing conflicts within and between nations, peacemaking, and by creating environments that allows peace to flourish. Other than maintaining international peace and security, the UN also seeks to promote and protect human rights (United Nations, 2020). It has used both on-the-ground activities and legal instruments to diligently protect human rights following the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 under the international law (United Nations, 2020). You have mentioned that all the UN member states remain sovereign states as far as the administration of governance is concerned. This means that the UN does not force any country to make certain decisions, neither can it overrule the Constitution of any member state. However, when it comes to the issue of the international court of justice, disputes within or between countries are settled in accordance with the international law. I think that this is a good thing because it prevents leaders and governments from acting in unjust manner towards its people or another country.
