We must end the ambiguity that Nations-states
maintain about this subject. Based on the excellent
purpose to protect any nation against foreign
interference, Article 2, #7, of the United Nations
charter states that : "nothing contained in the present
Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene
in matters which are essentially within the domestic
jurisdiction of any state".
It becomes more and more obvious that this passage is
used to an excess ; the restriction in the words "are
essentially within" is deliberately ignored on behalf of
the insistence on "absolute national sovereignty". On the
other hand, when a country wants to forget about the
principle of national sovereignty it usually appeals to,
it takes up the deceptive argument of the "call for help"
a friendly nation uttered. Contemporary history gives us
many examples : interference of the United States in
Vietnam, of France in Chad, of Vietnam in Cambodia, of
the Soviet Union in Afghanistan
People react, following their own opinions, with the
phrase : "it is not the same thing". Yet, if we take the
point of view of a jurist, which is ours, the situations
are identical and mean for the populations who suffer,
blood and tears and mourning.
All this stresses the incompetence of the U.N. in a
Mundialists advocate something entirely different :
the creation of a world organization endowed with the
power of implementing global, public and private law in
the enforcement of the principles of the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights. This proposal is not
utopian. There is the potential for immediate
enforcement, if Article 2 of the Charter is submitted to
A World Arbitration Institution could be
created, following the broad lines we give now :
- Constitution : it would be made of
representatives giving every warranty of objectivity,
without any pre-eminence or veto power on behalf of
- Attributions : it would respond to any
appeal coming from a population, a group or an
individual that introduced a complaint about a breach
of Human Rights committed by a State.
- Sentences : they would be pronounced
against, or in favour of a government.
- Means of coercion : they might belong to
the economic field (the States that have signed the
Convention would pledge themselves to enforce them, or
else, suffer reprisals on themselves).
Before the establishment of a world federal
organization is achieved, such an Institution could be
created, very rapidly, if advantage was taken of the
existing organizations of U.N., such as the International
Court of La Haye.
