United Nations Charter Review in 2020.
An Urgent Necessity!

Tim Murithi
July 2019; 4 pages


In 2020, the United Nations (UN) system will be 75 years old. Despite the existence of this international system which was intended to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war and address global challenges, the world seems to be in a precarious state. Against this background, Tim Murithi calls for a fundamental review of the UN Charter in 2020. He recommends to transform the UN system in a manner that will make it more democratic and inclusive in its decision-making.
