"The Sokovia Accords. Approved by 117 countries, it states that the Avengers shall no longer be a private organization. Instead, they'll operate under the supervision of a United Nations panel, only when and if that panel deems it necessary."
Thaddeus Ross to the Avengers[src]

The United Nations is an intergovernmental organization established to promote international co-operation.

They were attacked on their headquarters during a talk by Brigadier General 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.[4] Sunil Bakshi was then held responsible for the attack.[5]

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.[6]

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.[7]

When Deputy Director of the CIA Marion James was interrogated by Homeland Security, she came out of the room to answer a phonecall by United Nations.[8]
