Comparison of UN with the League of Nations UN has been more successful because of more time and money being devoted to Economic and Social development work. Also, the scope of UN is much wider in the domain of socio-economic development than LoN. All specialized agencies of UN, except ILO, were setup after 1945. . . UN is more focused on Good Governance. Tioe Mtllenliut De felomunletet (aondsWorksiththe member-nations for achievement of developmental targets UN has been able to take decisive action due to change in procedures as UNGA does not need unanimous vote. Also, UNSC veto can be overruled by UNGA as per the Uniting for Peace Resolution of 1950 (during Korean War (1950) - USSR was boycotting the UNSC due to non-admission of Communist China. Some analysts argued that abstention meant vetoing the resolution. Thus, UNGA was consulted and it passed this clause that allowed veto to be overruled and thus UN could intervene in the Korean war) . . The resolution stated that "in any cases where the Security Council, because of a lack of unanimity amongst 0 its five permanent members, fails to act as required to maintain international peace and security, the General Assembly shall consider the matter immediately and may issue any r commendations it deems necessary in order to restore international peace and security." 2

UN is more important in the era of Global Governance and as the world has become more integrated due to Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization and issues of global concern like environment and safety of other Global Commons,
