Labour looking into possible UN reforms, including UNSC and GA powers

Labour will review possible reforms to United Nations (UN) institutions, including "the structure of the security council, the role of the general assembly and the powers of the World Health Organization."


Ray Collins, shadow foreign minister and leader of the review, conceded that prior reform attempts have been stalled due to the P5 veto power, a function that has caused criticism of the UN Security Council (UNSC). Part of the UNSC criticism has been its limited representation. As highlighted in the article below, the P5, made up of "China, France, Russia, the UK and the US ... reflect the outcome of the second world war, but exclude many major economies including Brazil, Germany, India and Japan."
