The new basic information provides an overview of the United Nations. The principles and goals of the UN are explained as well as the (founding) history. The sub-organizations are also presented practically.

Wars, epidemics, famines and climate catastrophes have an impact beyond national borders. Multilateralism, that is, standards-based cooperation between more than two countries, is the answer to these global political challenges. It is the highest maxim for action, goal and purpose of the United Nations.
