 United Nations and Human Rights by Sanderson Beck
On December 11, 1946 the United Nations General Assembly unanimously passed Resolution 95 affirming the principles of international law recognized by the charter and judgment of the Nuremberg Tribunal.
As with Woodrow Wilson and the League of Nations, the primary initiator of the United Nations was an American president, Franklin Roosevelt.
He concluded hopefully, "If the League of Nations, with its future benefits to the world, is adopted, the future generations will look to us and call us blessed."1 In 1920 FDR was selected by the Democratic convention as their candidate for Vice President and running mate of James Cox.

 UN Millennium Declaration
However by signing the Summit Declaration, the heads of state have given the United Nations and the U.N. General Assembly authority to begin implementing the recommendations required to achieve the objectives expressed in the Millennium Declaration--including a new UN Charter.
The Declaration also calls on the nation-states "to rectify the prevailing imbalance in global decision-making," which is based on the belief that the U.S. and other developed nations have taken advantage over other nations that are impoverished.
Perhaps most dangerous of all, is the commitment of the signatories of the Declaration to stop the unsustainable exploitation of water resources by "developing water management strategies at the regional, national and local levels including pricing structures promoting both equitable access and adequate supplies." Whoever controls the water, will control the people.

The huge Iraqi declaration, summarizing largely civilian industrial activity, was an anticlimax, since the Iraqi denial has been repeated endlessly, including by Gen. Amin on Saturday.

 Choike - Millennium Development Goals - MDGs
United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan warned that the world was falling short in meeting the objectives agreed by global leaders two years ago in the Millennium Declaration and outlined a series of steps being taken by the United Nations and its partners to help accelerate progress towards achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
The 60-year-old United Nations, criticised for its inherent structural political flaws, is so preoccupied with restructuring itself that the upcoming Millennium Summit is in danger of losing sight of one of its primary goals: a plan of action to primarily eradicate extreme hunger and poverty by 2015.
The Millennium Declaration was adopted in September 2000 by 189 world leaders who commited to "free all men, women and children from the abject and dehumanizing conditions of extreme poverty" by the year 2015.

 Pain initiative - Human Rights and Legal status
It is for this reason that health issues are prominent in the United Nations Millennium Declaration and the Millennium Development Goals[31].
A global United Nations conference should be promptly promoted in order to place the problem of the Treatment of Pain as a Human Right at the top of the global agenda, and to influence national and international policy-making processes on what is called today “health related rights”.
While the significance of national and regional particularities and various historical, cultural and religious backgrounds must be borne in mind, it is the duty of States, regardless of their political, economic and cultural systems, to promote and protect all human rights and fundamental freedoms”[16]

 Are Millennium Goals out of reach? (eng, NZZ Online)
Ahead of a major United Nations summit, Switzerland's top aid official tells swissinfo how the country is facing the challenges of the Millennium Development Goals.
But the key question, on the practical side, is whether nations' parliaments will ask why they should allocate so much public money while leading nations are not providing financial backing.
So it will not have a very large impact because all the other nations will certainly continue [with aid efforts] because they are bound to do so.
