India & United Nations

India was one of the United Nations’ select members who signed the Declaration of the United Nations in Washington on January 1, 1942, and attended the landmark UN Conference on International Organizations in San Francisco from April 25 to June 26, 1945. During the United Nations’ stormy years of struggle against colonialism and apartheid, India was at the vanguard. India was a co-sponsor of the momentous United Nations Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples of 1960, which emphasized the need to abolish colonialism in all its forms and manifestations unconditionally. India was also elected as the first head of the Decolonization Committee (committee of 24), where it is well known for its tireless efforts to eradicate colonialism. India was one of the most vocal opponents of South Africa’s apartheid and racial inequality. In reality, India was the first country to raise this problem at the United Nations (in 1946), and it played a key role in the General Assembly’s creation of a Sub Committee against Apartheid. India’s position inside the UN system as a major champion for developing countries’ concerns and aspirations, as well as the construction of a more fair international economic and political order, was solidified by its status as a founding member of the Non-Aligned Movement and the Group of 77.

India, as a founding member of the United Nations, strongly supports the UN’s goals and ideals, and has made important contributions to the Charter’s implementation and the creation of the UN’s specialised programmes and organisations. India’s growing engagement with the United Nations is based on its unwavering commitment to multilateralism and discussion as the most effective means of accomplishing shared goals and tackling global concerns. India is convinced that the United Nations and the international norms that it has promoted are the most effective means of addressing today’s global challenges, including the most pressing issues in the world today, such as sustainable development, poverty eradication, the environment, climate change, peacebuilding and peacekeeping, terrorism, disarmament, human rights, migration, and health and pandemics. The UN also plays a vital role in emerging sectors including cyber security, space, and cutting-edge technology like artificial intelligence. India is committed to working with the international community in the spirit of multilateralism to find comprehensive and equitable solutions to all global concerns. India, as a major supporter of reformed multilateralism, supports a comprehensive reform of the United Nations and its institutions to make them more reflective of 21st-century reality, allowing for more effective collective action.
