Following the devastation of the Second World War, the United Nations was born. It has developed into a worldwide body for all nations and - to a large extent - maintained peace and stability throughout the world

The first meeting of the United Nations General Assembly was held at the Methodist Central Hall, Westminster, London on 10 January 1946 (see photographs above). There were 51 nations represented at this first meeting.

Today, the General Assembly is one of six principal organs of the United Nations. It is the only one in which all member nations have equal representation. The powers of the U.N. General Assembly are to oversee the budget of the United Nations, appoint the non-permanent members to the Security Council, receive reports from other parts of the United Nations and make recommendations in the form of General Assembly Resolutions.
