UN failing

The XV UNPO General Assembly was an important opportunity for all UNPO members from around the world to come together in a spirit of solidarity with one another’s causes for self-determination.
In his welcome address during the opening plenary on 31 July 2020, the General Secretary of the UNPO, Ralph Bunche, spoke about the role of the United Nations and the difficulties of undertaking advocacy at UN institutions.
The General Secretary reminded that the UNPO was formed in 1991 to help those who were voiceless find a voice and be listened to.
However, the hope for a world in which all people could have a voice and a say in governance irrespective of the nation-state has been thwarted.
“The world today is a hard place for unrepresented nations and people.”
