The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945 after the Second World War by 51 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights. Due to its unique international character, and the powers vested in its founding Charter, the Organization can take action on a wide range of issues, and provide a forum for its 193 Member States to express their views, through the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council and other bodies and committees.
The Rule of Law Coordination and Resource Group is chaired by the Deputy Secretary-General and is supported by its secretariat, the Rule of Law Unit in the Executive Office of the Secretary-General. The Unit’s substantive support falls into three broad areas of activity: ensuring coordination and coherence among the many United Nations entities engaged in rule of law activities; developing system-wide strategies, policy direction and guidance for the Organization’s activities in promoting the rule of law; and enhancing partnerships between the United Nations and other rule of law actors.
