Functions and forms of participation of international organizations in world political processes and settlement of international conflicts

Keywords: international organizations, security, international conflicts


In modern conditions, many political contradictions are intensifying, new threats and challenges to peace and security on the planet appear, and the geopolitical confrontation of leading international actors makes it difficult to solve the problem of socio-economic development of the world as a whole. In connection with this, the importance and role of international organizations and the UN, in particular, as a leading world organization and global political institution is growing. The international world is ensured by two mechanisms – the balance of forces on the world stage, on the one hand, international organizations and international law, on the other. In terms of its capabilities, the UN is the second mechanism of the international world to the greatest extent. At this stage, in practical terms, modern international intergovernmental organizations have not yet developed a unified approach to conducting peacekeeping operations and a unified theoretical and legal framework for peacekeeping. This is due, first of all, to the preservation of the priority of the national interests of states that continue to deviate from there, often narrowly understood, tasks in the matter of stabilizing the world political situation in general and individual conflicts in particular. Therefore, the effectiveness of peacekeeping, which requires concerted joint actions of actors of world politics, continues to remain at a low level, and therefore modern international organizations face the task of increasing their international legal status and becoming real competitors of states in resolving international conflicts.
