– Snapshot 2043>2045. 100 years after the end of the Second World War in Europe.
A snapshot in the year 2045..
Reforms were desperately needed to keep the UN credible and decisive in the world of today and tomorrow.
UN Head Office and Security Council
First of all, the head office, including the most famous organ of the UN, the Security Council, moved from New York to Geneva in Switzerland. The United States was no longer seen as the moral leader of the world. The neutral Switzerland, where UN facilities are already located and where the predecessor of the UN, the League of Nations, was established therefore a better location.
The UN Security Council was reformed. Consist of 12(?!) permanent members only after some new members have been accepted. India and Japan as countries. And unions of nations got also a seat or took over the seat of a current UNSC permanent member state. The EU took over the seat of France and proposed new seat for Germany. The African Union got a seat and also the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The (rehabilitated) Union of South American Nations (USAN) and also the union-version of the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO), (the new Organization of North and Middle-American States?! and the …) also got a seat in the reformed UNSC.
The voting system of the UNSC remains the veto-system and power. All 12 members have veto-power.
UN Peace Keeping
UN peace keeping missions will continue to be carried out. But never again toothless and powerless missions such as UNAMIR in Rwanda and UNPROFOR in Bosnia, which could not prevent the genocides in Rwanda and in Srebrenica.
International Court of Justice (ICJ)
The Netherlands and within the city of The Hague, remains the (UN) city of peace and justice with the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
Why 2045?! In 2045 it is 100 years ago World War 2 ended in Europe.
