UN System and Its Resolutions- How Subsidiary Agencies Emerge and Grow

Onuegbu, Festus C.


Thus, these resolutions that bring nation-states into a common undertaking in specific areas of global interest consequently usher in regimes in those areas with emergence of ancillary or subsidiary agencies to the UN. It is against this backdrop that this paper, taking the path of the functionalist theoretical construct as the relevant framework of analysis, attempts to examine the circumstances and the underpinning variables that informed the emergence of these subsidiary agencies to UN, and the dynamics that predicate their continued international existence. Although, it is strongly contended that their emergence is functional to peace and stability universally, their inherent drawbacks cannot be vaguely denied. Therefore, the advocacy is that states should put in more diplomatic commitments and international sacrifices devoid of ‘high politics’ and less consideration of ‘sovereignty bigotry’ in order to improve on universal peace and global understanding.
