What We Do?
United Nations Reforms & Review Project
Expanding and Realizing Reformed Multilateralism for the United Nations
Presenting the United Nations Reforms & Review Project by Internationalism.
As affirmed by G20 states, the United Nations, is not that much successful in its programmes and initiatives so far due to political issues, and even at the cost of the rules-based international order.
It is high time to realize that the UN's approach towards multilateralism can be preserved and attained only when the focus is on all ends and not just on sovereign and political interests.
The Project encompasses on specific and clear critique of the UN and its agencies, their failures and successes, their diplomatic and undiplomatic considerations and hopes to induce solutions for long-term risks that come in for a rules-based international order.

What We Do?
We strategize our focus on issues of international law and policy and failures of United Nations and its ECOSOC members by estimating policy paralysis, strategic constraints, constitutional and multilateral redemption, which strike at the core of the problems in the realm of the United Nations studies. Solving issues related to UN and Multilateralism based on Indian and Global South Leaderships, like of any other nation-state is to be determined on the basis of accountability considerations. It is therefore important to acknowledge that if we focus on our problems in strong parallelism with the avenues achieved by the UN as an essential player in the figurine of peace and international security, it has to be rendered with pragmatism and centralizing sovereignty not as a cold-war doctrine but a multipolar doctrine.
We do not believe in clickbait politics over issues of international relations, and therefore our research espouses the need to debunk politically-motivated narratives on Indian Diplomacy and Politics and encourage multidisciplinary research on the basis of strong basic roots of various fields, which are mingled into multi/inter/cross-disciplinary research.
