The United Nations (UN) was created more than 60 years ago in an atmosphere of hope. It was an idealistic time, one of 'never agains' and potential global cooperation. Article 1(3) of the UN Charter thus states that a goal of the UN is to "achieve international co-operation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion".
