The United Nations is an intergovernmental organization established to promote international co-operation.
During the HYDRA Uprising, S.H.I.E.L.D. was labeled as a terrorist organization. As such, the international community had cut ties with the organization. While watching news footage of the destruction of the Triskelion by one of the Helicarriers of Project Insight, Phil Coulson asked Shade to contact Martin as a back door method of communicating with the United Nations.
They were attacked on their headquarters during a talk by Glenn Talbot by HYDRA operatives posing as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Later, Senator Christian Ward had a press conference revealing that his brother was a traitor and HYDRA agent. Sunil Bakshi was then held responsible for the attack.
With public opinion of the Avengers and enhanced individuals increasingly divided due to the events in New York, Washington, D.C., Sokovia and Lagos, the United Nations passed the Sokovia Accords, a set of legal documents that would police the number of enhanced individuals while simultaneously deciding where and when the Avengers would operate.
The King of Wakanda, T'Challa, appeared before the United Nations in the Vienna International Centre and revealed to the world Wakanda's true nature and his intentions to use the country's technology to help the rest of the world.
