POWERS OF UNITED NATIONS AND REGIONAL ORGANISATION IN SETTLEMENT OF INTERNATIONAL DISPUTES

Gordanić Jelica (Master. E-mailv), jellow987@gmail.com

One of the most important aims of the international community is to maintain international peace and security and settle international disputes by peaceful means. OUN was established with that purpose. The main act of OUN is the Charter which provides the existence of regional organizations. When an international dispute breaks out regional organizations have the leading role in its peaceful settlement. If the international dispute cannot be solved by peaceful means, the UN Security Council takes actions. The Security Council is the only body that can apply enforcement measures and regional organizations participate in their implementation only when the Security Council approves it. The approval must be explicit and refers to the specific case. In practice, regional organizations often violate rules set by the Charter and use force without authorisation of the Security Council.
