Problem

Unrepresentative international nongovernmental organizations

Nature:

Many nongovernmental organizations are considered to be unrepresentative, namely when all the member countries and regions of the UN are not represented in them. As such they are not considered adequate vehicles for the formulation of impartial policy oriented to the interests of those most in need. Problems arise when representative spokespersons must be selected to address delegates at international meetings. Most NGOs have no system for polling their membership or reporting back to their colleagues on issues being deliberated in the UN.
