Visualizing Debate at the UN General Assembly

by Michael McLaughlin
A graph showing that UN resolutions have increasingly discussed human rights.

Al Jazeera has created a series of data visualizations showing how each nation has voted at the United Nations. Al Jazeera analyzed the 6,112 roll-call votes that took place between 1946 to 2018 at the UN General Assembly, and the visualizations show how the debate has shifted from topics such as colonialism to topics such as human rights, disarmament, and economic development. Users can interact with the visualizations to see how different countries voted on a particular issue. 

Take a look.
