The Charter of the United Nations promotes and protects the human rights of person irrespective of their nationality and gender. The key purpose and guiding principle of the organization is itself the safeguarding of the human rights.
The key objective of the United Nations Charter is to ensure that the world is protected from falling into the pit hole of deadly wars that though at the outer surface reflect the necessary process of bringing peace but in reality, are the key sources of destruction, disruption, disturbance, and loss. It also works in the direction to instil the faith in fundamental human rights in the present as well as succeeding generations to come. Understanding the dire need to protect the dignity and worth of human beings UN Charter ensure equality, irrespective of gender biases, nationality, and religious or political inclinations.
UN Charter brought human rights into the realm of international law through its 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights and since then ensures to protect human rights through legal instruments and on-the-ground activities. It spreads the message to its member nations as well as to the rest of the globe to practice tolerance and avoid fundamentalism by living in peace and harmony. It holds the capability to strengthen global strength to fight the stated and unstated evils so as to ensure international peace and security. It even looks after the employment of international machinery for the promotion of the economic and social development of all. Non-Aligned Movement and its founding principles of ensuring peace, progress, prosperity, security and sustainable development goals could easily identify with the Charter of the United Nations as by and large both organisations have similar set of values.
Even the United Nations has appreciated NAM’s commendable and continuous efforts to promote peace and security.
Despite the commendable changes brought by efforts of Member States of Non-Aligned Movement, millions of people still live under the threat of extremism, violence and are kept away from enjoying their basic human rights. The major reason for such violent conflicts is the fight for limited resources, be it natural or social, and the need to stabilize oneself at a powerful position.
The temptation of power is what drives us away from clinging to humanitarian goals and pressurise not just our political and social environment but even adversely affect our natural environment. All the shared challenges that is directly or indirectly making us go astray from our civilizational ideals find its solution in co-operation and collaboration through multilateralism and Non-Aligned Movement has been one of the pioneers in spreading the ethic of multilateralism.
NAM identifying with the UN Charter has been a chief advocate of gender empowerment, maintainer of peace, and tackled environmental challenges to uphold sustainable growth in all fields.
NAM has also expressed solidarity with the United Nations General Assembly to adopt new Political Declaration to advance the cause of peace and its efforts have been a paradigm of commitment to the global agenda of maintaining and sustaining peace along with development. NAM has about two-thirds of UN Membership that keeps it at an obligatory and responsible position to adopt the ideals stated in the Charter of United Nation.
NAM has urged its Member States to uphold the principles stated in the UN Charter and spread hands of collaboration and friendship for which it is recognised worldwide. By doing so, it aims to enhance a rules-based multilateral system so as to keep he mantle of peace and security which is the basic tenet of the UN Charter. NAM in its efforts have involved the ideas of egalitarianism and justice which tends to inculcate women, youth, civil society organisations as well as private sector for developing innovative ways for the prevention of any potential conflict, and find resolution to sustain peace and prosperity.
Thus, by sticking to the UN Charter, NAM and its member states will fulfil their global responsibility of sustaining growth, development and protect the world from the evils of violence and extremism.
