      Group 1: The United Nations and International Politics as Instrument or Challenger of Great Powers

      Objectives:
      1. To determine whether the UN as an Intergovernmental Organization is an instrument or challenger of great powers in different aspects like economy, politics and culture.
      2. To give analysis afterwards

      -United States uses its veto power on the Security Council resolutions criticizing Israel

      b. Great powers fund UN more than any other countries ———————————-(Oracion)
      -If US pull out their funding in UN it will be paralyzed.

      c. The very foundation of UN is basis enough that the organization was to become an instrument of Great Powers —–(Magbanua)
      i. The UN was to become a club headed by Great Britain and US. States which would serve as a means of spreading “imperial internationalism” whereby the UN was an extension of beliefs and values of the dominant powers in the early 20th Century.

      III. United Nations as Challenger of Great Powers

      ———-(Peraman)
      -United Nations Transitional Government in East Timor facilitates the donations from donor countries especially the US which is a major power, thus, US cannot push their interests because UNTAET screens the donations entering East Timor. US must first adhere to the conditions set by the transitional government.

      b. Small member states use UN to challenge great powers ——-(Jaco)
      1. Philippines challenges great powers in UNGA by proposing resolutions regarding disarmaments.

      c. UN, by its procedural practices and the way in which it exercises its legitimizing functions, limits the potential threat caused by the great powers.(Venegas)
      i. It can provide code of illegitimacy through resolutions and treaties.
      -The International Criminal Commission limits the power of Great Powers trough treaties and is harmful to the national interest of the United States because it go against fundamental American notion of sovereignty, checks and balances and national independence.

      Abstract

      International Aid Imposes Structural Adjustments which Failed to Provide Economic Growth in Haiti

      Poverty is rated as the most serious global issue today; the widespread of poverty connotes unemployment, substandard housing, poor health conditions, and inadequate nutrition. To address the issue of poverty, the global community developed foreign aid. It is a loan provided by a government or international organization to help the recipient country and must pay back the loan within a specified period. For the last two decades, the Caribbean nation of Haiti has been obedient to the conditions of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and yet Haiti persists to be the poorest country in the Americas. In order to receive loans, the Haitian government has to give in to the demands of the IMF that damaged the agricultural sector of the country. They cut assistance to small farmers and opened the economy of Haiti into cheap agricultural products. As the rice from the US soon flooded the country, depressed the prices and pushed farmers to stop working thus increasing the unemployment and people became dependent on imported goods. This paper aims to evaluate the structural adjustment policies in the agricultural sector of Haiti imposed by the IMF. As the farmers stopped working because the government cut its assistance, many of them were put out of the business. Furthermore, with the lower import tariffs on rice, they could no longer compete with the agricultural products coming from the United States thus, lowering domestic production. These structural adjustment policies forced the government of Haiti to be subjected to the demands of the IMF that benefited the foreign investors through lower tariffs, undermining the needs of its people by challenging the agricultural sector. This paper will also focus on the effects of these structural adjustment policies and how it contributed to perpetuating the poverty in Haiti rather than solving it.
