October 01, 1985

A report prepared for the anniversary called for reforms to set up a "third generation world organization after the two experiments of the League of Nations and the United Nations." The report's author, a former French official, said that attempts at reform failed because member states have failed to try to understand the reasons for U.N. ineffectiveness.
