2 Considering that:
3The United Nations has succeeded with something unique; gathering nearly all countries4of the world into one organisation with possibilities to negotiate and cooperate. One 5example of a project where the United Nations has succeeded is the global sustainability 6goals.
7The organisation has large difficulties getting countries to actually perform changes and8that processes are often hindered by bureaucracy and veto rights.
9The veto right in the Security Council stops the possibilities to protect civilians in conflict10areas, and it is far too easy for dictatorships to gain power, which we have seen e.g. in 11the Human Rights Council, with countries such as Eritrea, Saudi Arabia and United Arab 12Emirates, countries that do not respect human rights, having served as members.
13The United Nations has the potential to contribute to change, but for this to be possible,14organisational changes to democratise the Security Council are required.
17The United Nations is only what its Member States want it to be, and that the resources18are limited to what Member States contribute with.
19The United Nations has had internal troubles with corruption, and a tendency to sweep its20troubles under the carpet.
22LYMEC calls for:
23Renew Europe and its Member Organisations to lobby for organisational changes to the24Security Council in the form of the removal of the permanent seats, the removal of the 25right to veto and that decisions in the Council should be made with a majority.
