Following the establishment of the United Nations in 1945, global politics entered a new era with the victorious powers of World War II in a position to help shape the norms, values and institutions of international relations for the coming decades.
The United States in partnership with its wartime allies, as well as Germany and Japan, put into existence the fabric of the so-called liberal world order, with the U.N. and its affiliated funds, programs, agencies and departments occupying center stage in this endeavor. As of today, the U.N. has approximately 40,000 employees working in various U.N. organs around the globe and a yearly budget of approximately $40 billion.
These figures are modest compared to many other international and regional organizations in charge of much narrower tasks and responsibilities. The U.N. is also running many peacekeeping operations in different conflict-riven geographies having around 100,000 troops under its command. Though the U.N. Charter does not include peacekeeping operations among its duties, the organization has undertaken many such operations since the second half of the 1950s till now.
