Shift, But Also Change, UN

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Apro­pos the Edit, ‘Time to Re­lo­cate the UN Out of US’ (Feb 14), the idea of re­lo­cat­ing the UN out of the US is per­sua­sive, and In­dia lap­ping it up is all the more tempt­ing. How­ever, mere re­lo­ca­tion will not ben­e­fit a con­flic­trid­den world. Re­form in the UN, es­pe­cially in its power struc­ture, is long over­due in view of the mas­sive changes in geopol­i­tics and the eco­nomic power of the na­tion states. If fast-de­vel­op­ing coun­tries like In­dia get their due recog­ni­tion at UN, they would pick up a higher pro­por­tion of its main­te­nance bills.
