Headline, June 17 2021/ ''' '' THE -UNITED FLAGS- TAP '' ''' : STUDENTS



THE VERY CORE - THE VERY WEAL OF The Global Founder Framers of The World Students Society is to build bridges of great understanding and empathy between, and for the entire mankind.

The Leaders and People in Power have gone about spending unimaginable amounts on weapons of mass destruction whereas human beings only want to live in peace and struggle for that elusive episode of happiness, in a general drama of real pain. Ask any student?

A healthy soul and a caring loving heart are the only wings that flap towards happiness and to help build a better world for the generation of students to come.

The World Students Society thanks most respectfully, Turkish novelist Elif Shafaq, Actor Samina Peerzada, and the Somali Ambassador Khadija Mohammed AI Makhzoumi for the above quotes.

The World Students Society rises to give mankind and the students of the entire world a resounding standing ovation.

FOR THOSE OF US - FOR THOSE STUDENTS WHO care about fairness, justice and the rights of the marginalized people, - the 'Security Council' has been more than a massive disappointment.

The list of failures is long and includes instances on every continent. The ability of five countries to veto what they or their allies find uncomfortable truths undermines the mission of truth, justice and humanity.

There are also serious concerns about the policies of the World Bank and how it helps itself more than it helps any other country, Addictive dependence on aid due to policies of the Bank has been raised as a frequent issue that has contributed to poverty and low levels of human development in poor countries.

Archives from the late 1940s and 1950s show that the concerns about prioritization of the rights and benefits of richer countries [US and Western Europe in particular have also plagued the UN from the very beginning.

But the problems are not just at the Security Council or the World Bank.

The pandemic has brought new scrutiny to the World Health Organization [WHO], and its limited ability to make countries share vaccines; create policies that are fair for all; or, as we have seen recently, share data about the origin of the virus.

In a bizarre move earlier this month, the WHO appointed Syria on its executive board. The move was decried by human rights groups and many Syrians who have lost everything.

A recent New York Times report has also uncovered secretive meetings at the International Maritime Organization [IMO] that is tasked with protecting the global climate, but in fact is helping countries and organizations pollute the planet in unprecedented ways.

Anyone who has worked with the United Nations or its agencies will tell you candidly that working with the institution is a bureaucratic nightmare. Things are painfully slow. The institution is also risk averse to a fault, and rarely takes controversial positions even when they may be the right ones, lest they alienate powerful countries.

My experience in working on issues of substandard and falsified drugs, or access to health services for refugees has been no different.

Yet, my experience has also been of meeting and learning from some of the most dedicated humanitarians who work for the UN.

At WHO, Unicef and UNHCR, three organizations that I have worked with, I have met people from all over the world who are knowledgeable, thoughtful and firm believers in human dignity.

These people are exceptionally brave, kind and smart. They are also willing to work across cultures, ethnicities, race and religion in ways that are inspiring.

This tension of an institution that is increasingly finding itself less relevant, and people who are so dedicated, is real. The criticisms of the UN are real and much needed, but it would be grossly inaccurate and unfair to argue that there is no good that comes out of the UN.

There is no doubt that the world needs an institution [or a set of institutions] to look at our collective problems and find common solutions.

Yet, increasing levels of nationalism mean that the collective solutions are going to be harder to find.

At the very core, cooperation and collaboration means compromise, but that is exactly what modern nationalism tries to undermine.

These days politicians campaign on undermining the UN, and get plenty of votes for that. The countries that need to be held accountable are least likely to care much about the UN, its resolution or policies.

So where does that leave those of us who care about the mission, but are increasingly frustrated by the failures?

Bureaucracy thrives on status quo, but progress requires challenging that. Progress requires confronting hard truths, reflecting on the history and asking why ordinary people from Palestine to Peru may be frustrated with the organization.

Perhaps it is time for real reform, or a new model. Perhaps it is time to ask : who do we really want to serve - the people, the politicians or the status quo? Fortunately, in my experience, UN has the people who are smart enough to ask these questions.

I think they also know the answers. We should all focus and struggle to save it from Unraveling.

The Honor and Serving of the Latest Global Operational Research on Global Institutions designed for the great purpose of serving mankind, continues.

The World Students Society thanks Professor Muhammad Hamid Zaman, Howard Hughes Medical Institute of Biomedical Engineering, International Health and Medicine at Boston University.

With respectful dedication to the World, and then Students, Professors and Teachers of the World. See Ya all prepare and register for Great Global Elections on The World Students Society : wssciw.blogspot.com and Twitter - !E-WOW! - The Ecosystem 2011 :
